It transcends religion, cuts through cultural ties, eludes ethnicity, ignores bank accounts and fails to distinguish between sex, weight, age and even familial bonds.
Your favorite team is your favorite team. It’s not your dad’s, your sister’s or even that of your spouse. Your inalienable right as a sports fan is to root for whomever you want.
