Charlie, all is good as long as the grandchildren don the Orange and Black. Personally, I tell my daughter she's not allowed to date Yankee fans (she clearly is going to have to move) because the thought of any future grandchildren wearing pin-stripes gives me the willies (the same goes for Ranger and Devils fans too, but they're secondary to the Yankees in my hatred book).
