Default Pick a team any team

So here is the deal. One of my best friends and his now soon to be wife are having a baby in November. He is from Altoona area just like I am and is a die hard. However here is the problem...she is from Cleveland. And you know what that means . She says she wont let her child grow up a Steelers fan and he refuses to let the kid be a Browns fan. So my solution to him was pick another team for kid to root for (But secretly push Steeler propaganda on the kid). If you were in that situation...what team would you want your kid to root for. Personally I think I would root for either the Eagles, the Texans, or the Jets...just something completely different.

Too bad they live in Iowa right now but will be moving to Atlanta after the baby is born...and I know he hates the Falcons. His solution was to have the kid root for the Redskins so he will always be better or then them haha. I just wanted to get your opinions on the situation. Kinda funny if ya think about.

Could always go for Steelers 2.0 aka Cardinals.

How in the world did he marry a Browns fan is what I want to know.

Here's what ya tell them to do. They each wear their favorite team's gear. When the child is old enough the child will make up it's own mind. Tell him he can win the war by wearing his Steelers gear more than she wears the Browns. The kid will do the rest.

Despite what either of them want the child will probably grow up a Falcons fan if they stay in Atlanta very long.

The wife is in a lose/lose situation.

You figure by the time the kid is in his/her teens the Cleveland Browns will still stink. So I'm guessing the kid will automatically realize that the Steelers are the team to root for. The Dark Side never wins.

Damn. I just realized how much I hate almost every other team. o_O

But, if I wasn't a Steelers fan, I'd be a Saints fan. So I'd go with them...

within the parameters of your post (actually having to pick 1 of 30 other teams), i always looked at the panthers as the steelers little sister franchise from when dom capers built them.

if they get cowher, thats the way to go. otherwise the cardinals. the kid can be original, and nobody can accuse him of being a bandwaggoner
