Tonight, though, a link was made for me when i caught a fan's video on youtube of a local San Franciscan, Steve Perry formerly of the band Journey, singing the group's classic "Don't Stop Believin'" from the way up in the second-tier stands along with the entire crowd -- all 43,000+ of them -- with no halftime BS, just passion and thrill for the hometown team. This is the frontman of an enormous moneymaker who turned down the nostalgia tour and has laid low watching others make money from his melodies.
It was the first time in the Series that i understood how Americans might really, deeply, feel about the game. Seem like Cricket to me, nevertheless, but it's a blast around here no matter. A friend of mine remarked, though, that he can't stop believin' Steve Perry still has the same haircut from 1982.
