I became a 49ers fan when I was like 3 b/c my family is from northern California and they were all fans so I naturally became a fan.
I didn't become a Yankees fan until 98 I believe cause everyone in my class were fans of the Cubs and Cards because of the homerun race or Seattle because of Griffey and the Yankees were on tv one day and I decided that would be my team. It just so happened they had an amazing year and went on to win the World Series so I was called a bandwagon jumper for it but after I started memorizing stats and stuff all that talk went away pretty quick.
