It is also a popular anthem for sporting events; for example, it was prominently associated with the 1982 World Series victory by the St. Louis Cardinals and is played over the PA system after Oakland Athletics, Detroit Tigers, and Hagerstown Suns, victories. The indoor soccer team, the Baltimore Blast plays this song when they score a goal and win the game.
The song is also notable for having played when the remaining American hostages returned home following the 1979-1981 Iran Hostage Crisis. It was also rewritten in 1984 as the jingle for Diet Orange Crush, now saccharin-free and sweetened with Nutrasweet.
