New Yorkers- (Yankees/Mets fans)

Postby cannonarm21 » Sat Feb 11, 2006 10:28 am

I have a dumb question

If you are a Yankee fan, are you a NY Giants fan?
Are Mets fans Jets fans?

I am curious if there is any rhyme or reason to which football/baseball teams true New Yorkers root for.

LOL!!! I don't think it quite works that way. Then again, aren't the Giants squirrely about facial hair too? :-? :-D

Hmmm... not all the time: I am a fan of the Jets and the Yanks. The Giants-Yanks thing is the case a lot of the time, though.

No as a Mets fan, I can't stand the Giants, and am indifferent to the Jets. If you must know I am a Broncos fan.

But that might be because I don't live in New York, I live in Chesapeake Va, which is the home of the AAA Mets franchise to growing up to me I naturally gravitated to the major league franchise.

I'm a Mets/Giants fan. Most of my family is except my brother (the rebel) who is a Yankees/Jets fan. Go figure.

It would seem like Yankees/Giants and Mets/Jets would make sense since you have a pair of original teams and a pair of expansion teams. But a lot of Mets fans (the generation before mine) were Brooklyn Dodgers fans.

I'm a Mets/Giants fan.

I'm dating myself, but I started as a 5 yr old rooting for the NY Giants ... hated the Yankees growing up. When the Giants left and Mets came into existence, they filled the void.

Started rooting for the Giants in the Gifford/Huff/Tittle days.

I don't really think what baseball team you are a fan of, will affect what football team you follow for this reason. A lot current Mets fans (or thier parents) were fans of the Dodgers (and i guess some were NY baseball giant fans) were also NY football Giant fans. So when they became Mets fans a few years later they remained Giant fans.

I'm a Yankees/Jets fan. I am obviously excited that football season is over and baseball season is about to start.
