It’s an inevitable part of life that we all start to take on the personality traits and habits of our parents. No matter how hard we try as teenagers to be the polar opposites of the people who gave us life, in the end it’s generally a losing battle. In a lot of cases our parents are usually the deciding factor in which teams we root for, as the only reason I’m a White Sox fan instead of a Cubs fan is because my father is a White Sox fan.
Of course, just because we take after our parents that doesn’t mean we need to live the exact same lives. At least, I don’t think you have to. Some families seem to believe otherwise, like the Kuhlman family of Chicago. They’re all Chicago Blackhawks fans, and they seem to have developed a new family tradition in which they die while attending Blackhawks games.
