Is it okay to switch favorite NHL teams?

I grew up in Washington DC and was raised a Caps fan by my dad. I liked the Caps a lot but I never considered them to be a part of my "blood" if you will..

6 months ago, I recently moved to Tampa Florida. During the previous NHL season, I met a few new buddies and we went to about 10 TB Lightning games this season. I had a blast and just fell in love with the team.. The uniforms, logo, colors, city (I love Tampa itself), players, atmosphere, fans, etc. I felt like the fans in Tampa were a lot more friendly than in DC. I felt like I belonged there.

I wanna be a full time Lightning fan. However, my friends and family in DC will not be happy about it. Is it wrong of me to switch?

    Yes, it is. Back in 2012, I loved the Capitals. They lost Alex Semin who was my favorite player and my best friend at the time passed away who was a Rangers fan, so from there on out, I always bled red white and blue.

    That's your choice --

    But shouldn't a 13 year old be able to decide such things on their own ?

    Yes it is. The NHL home ice advantage throughout the playoffs relocation from Tampa Bay to Boston, now they should be called the Boston Lightning.

    Sure you can switch teams. Or you can root for both teams. Lots of people have a hometown team and a current town team.

    But don't root for Tampa just because they were so good this season. Will you still be their fan during a losing season? If so, Let's Go Lightning!

    You can root for whatever team you want.

    its wrong to switch to a team that tied the all time regular season wins and points record and then gets swept by a wild card

  • Do what you want. People change allegiances all the time, I reckon (I don't- in terms of fandom, I maintain strict monogamy) but some people like the polyamoury lifestyle. You do you.

  • Cheer for whom you want. (That said, I live in DC and have family in Tampa, so the Bolts are now my fallback team.)

    cheer for whomever your want. Right or wrong.

    It isn't wrong to switch. But is it wrong to switch to Tampa.
