To be completely fair and unbiased and scientific about this, every time I ask someone around here for their favorite sports team, it's almost always a team from NY. Sounds like a clearcut case of location discrimination on your part. Rather, I choose to believe all people are biologically the same.

For example, I've been to Seattle a bunch of times. Nice city. A bit rainy, but the people are generally pleasant. Anyhow, did being physically in Seattle make me a Mariners fan? No. So I'm really having a hard time visualizing people being born in Seattle as NY sports fans somehow later identifying as a Seattle fan. It's just not natural.

BTW, between you and me, if you want to cure yourself of being a Seattle fan, I know some bars that specialize in that in the Bronx. Just wear a Mariner jersey at the bar and the guys there will start the therapy. :)
