By the way, I was being facetious.


What is your rationale?

Do you think that the teams that you have hitched your wagon to have pretty colors? Did a player you like, play for one of those teams? And were you an Oilers fan?
If it's the latter, Simon Gagne was a good player and a good person in the community when he was here. Far as I know, he never turned down an autograph and always kept his nose clean. He's in Tampa Bay now, does that mean I should support the Lightning? Because I couldn't care less about their organization.

I have a personal example: my late grandfather is from NYC. He used to cut Joey D's hair at his barber shop, and was a walking Yankee encyclopedia. When my mom was a child, her father would take her into the dugout during bp, something I had an opportunity to do twice when I was a little kid.
He always made me watch the Yankees on TV when I would visit him, not like I had a choice.

Should I be a Yankees fan? Even though I was born and raised in Philly, and grew up watching the teams that play here?

Personally, I don't understand it. But I give a break to the people who don't\never lived here that want to support our teams.
Her rationale is you being a jerk off.
