Preventing Yankee/Laker fandom

When my kids were babies, I thought about holding Yankees hats and Lakers hats over their heads in their crib, then pinching them until they started crying (to condition them to instinctively hate their logos/colors). Then I realized that was barbaric and would probably get me thrown in jail. Still, if your kids root for teams you hate, that means you've failed as a parent and you should probably just give the kids away and try again.
