The San Francisco Giants are up two games to one against the Atlanta Braves in the National League Division Series. In an attempt to rally their team and fans, the Giants have adopted Journey’s song “Don’t Stop Believing” as their playoff anthem. The Giants are not the first sports team to claim the song as their own…. among other baseball teams in the past include the Minnesota Twins and the Chicago White Sox. Being from Detroit, I take extreme offense to team’s who think it is “their” song, considering the song was written in Detroit and even references the city in the song. Even putting my ultimate sports pet peeve aside, the song is out of control corny. The question remains… what are some of your sports pet peeves?
Samantha Steele- December 2012
ESPN sideline reporter Samantha Steele is engaged to Minnesota Viking QB Christian Ponder earning her the honor of December 2012 Jersey Chaser of the Month.Steele and Ponder began dating at the begining of the NFL season and both had breakout years. Ponder claimed the starting job for the Vikings, while Steele was crowned ESPN’s new darling with the departure of Erin Andrews. The couple met on the College Game Day set. When asked about the relationship, Ponder said: “The cool thing is that obviously, we’re both at the same time, so we don’t get to see each other that much. But at least one person isn’t feeling guilty about not making the effort to do it or whatever. Then we kind of have the same schedule in the off season, so that’ll be good.” Share It
