Well thankfully my SO and I have the same team and so do my dad and I Redskins baby!!! However my sister and mom are both Dallas fans go figure our arch rival! Does anyone else have family or SO/FI/DH who root for different football teams?

I am a Jets fan, and my fiance is a Patriots fan. I’ve been a fan of the Jets since I was a kid, but he didn’t even start watching football until after college (and likes to TiVo it – how lame), so I keep telling him he should change allegiances.

I don’t think Darling Husband would have dated me (much less married me) if I was a Raider fan. Luckily we’re a Chargers household! : )

Well, we live in Columbus, Ohio and Fiance grew up in Michigan. Which means my whole family roots for OSU and Fiance roots for Michigan.

Here in Michigan there is, of course, a huge rivalry between University of Michigan and Michigan State University. Jim is a big UofM fan. I really don’t care one way or the other, but I used to work for MSU, so I do have a bit of loyalty to them.
Friends of our are on opposite sides. She likes MSU and he likes UofM. I joked with them about having a mixed marriage, and asked how that was working for them. They laughed and said it makes like more interesting. Jim is adamant, however, that we will NOT have a mixed marriage! haha!

No rivalry here, die hard Husker fans both of us. I think its a rule that once you have lived in Nebraska you have to be a Husker fan, LOL. GO BIG RED!

We both grew up in Indiana, so we both are diehard Indianapolis Colts fans. I don’t think I’d be able to stomach it if he was a Patriots fan (no offense NE fans, but I’m sure you feel the same way about the Colts…lol)

@Whimsical.Sprite: We pretty much feel the same way about the Patriots too! (Chargers)

Well, I am a Husker fan, and I’ve actually been fairly successful in converting him because his team was an every-once-in-a-great-while rival: Penn State. His mom is an alum from there. However, I think even with the Huskers joining the Big Ten next year, I will still have a good shot at keeping him in the light. 🙂 He also was torn when we played his alma mater: South Dakota State, but that one is justified in my book.
As far as the NFL goes, I am a Pats fan, and I THINK he likes the Vikings because it’s close, but since I’m not even sure if that is his team, its obviously not an issue in our home. 🙂

Well I’m a die hard Indianapolis Colts fan while Darling Husband loves the Atlanta Falcons but they really aren’t rivals.
Darling Husband, his sister and I all went/go to Georgia Tech and my Mother-In-Law went to Georgia. We all enjoy giving her a hard time over that rivalry.

Not football, but baseball! I’m a Phillies fan while he’s a Red Sox fan. We usually don’t get in each others’ way unless they’re playing each other! But…I think I’m slowly turning him into a Phillies fan too…I had him cheering for them in the playoffs this year!

@Whimsical.Sprite: Yes, we do feel the same way about the Colts
Fiance and I both grew up in NE so we are Pats fans through and through. Also, since I was born in LA and that’s where my Dad lives, we also root for the Saints (when they aren’t playing the Pats!). As far as college go, it’s just not very big up here in New England. My Dad would watch the games, but there are no teams that we are die hard about.

@tksjewelry: Haha, I live in Nebraska & married a Husker fan…so as he says, ‘Now that you said ‘I DO’, you have now vowed that you are a true Husker fan’. GO BIG RED!! But I am a USC fan at heart, but will cheer on the Huskers!
