Reason No. 2 to Root for the Astros

Reason #1 is of course Jerry "I'm far too busy and important to get up off my fat ass and finish negotiating your stadium lease" Reinsdorf.

Reason #2 is the White Sox unofficial theme song, Journey's "Don't Stop Believing."
"That's manly. Journey is manly. Why is Journey not manly? I heard Joe Theismann say on the radio that Journey was his favorite group, and Theismann was pretty manly, wasn't he?"
--Pierzynski, when asked why they didn't choose a song that's more manly (MLB.com)

It could have been worse. They actually took a vote. The other four choices were

1) "Voices Carry" by Til Tuesday
2) "The Safety Dance" by Men Without Hats
3) "Don't Talk to Strangers" by Rick Springfield
4) "The Touch" by Stan Bush (Famous for it's inclusion in both the Transformers movie and Boogie Nights)

All in all I think Journey was the right call.

Are you kidding? It's gotta be "Safety Dance." No contest.
