You're not the only one.
I was a Devils fan as a kid. Growing up in North Jersey in the 80s, it was pretty easy. The team practiced nearby, the players were accessible, etc.
However, my dad is from NY and he's a huge Rangers fan. That was one factor, the fact the early 90's Rangers were a great team was another, and perhaps most important to a then-11 year old, I went to school with one of the Devil's players daughters and we didn't get along. So I ended up switching teams out of spite. It seemed logical at the time. The '94 Cup run a few years later helped seal the deal.
