    Do your kids "have to be" Mets fans?

    My kids have watched a lot of Mets baseball with me and been to a lot of games, but they are 9,7 and 2. They get very into the Mets because their daddy loves the Mets. But part of me knows that being Mets, Jets, Knicks fans they will just continue rooting for teams that will never win like their father has. So, do you make your kids be Mets fans, or give them room to choose?

    When I have kids in the future, they have to be Mets fans. They will play baseball too.

    If I was planning on having kids, I would try to influence their decision making when it comes to rooting for the teams I root for. Buy them Mets clothes, dress their rooms up in Met's stuff, and keep the Mets on the tv when we are watching baseball. Hopefully that would be enough for them to become Met fans but if it wasn't and they became Yankee fans, then it's time to disown them.






























    Just joking, they can root for whoever they want.

    If my kids turn out to be non-Mets fans, gay, or black, I will throw them out of the house, and make sure they never work in this town again.

    You made the same point as filihok except that he asked a straight question instead of mocking the query. And then you insulted filihok.

    Good word. I do not have to explain why I would throw my kids out of the house if they came home with a yankees shirt or started rooting for the Phillies. I just would. And that is my right as a parent.

    Yes it is. They knew what they were getting into when they were born.

    They should be Cardinal , Patriot and Spurs fans; at least they will be rooting for franchises that know how to win.

    No, my daughter doesn't have to be a Met fan. But she is. Probably the same reason I'm a Met fan: My dad.

    But no, i wouldn't hold it against her if she were a Yankee fan.

    But if she were Gay, Christian, Republican, or Ugly, she'd be disowned immediately.
