Confession: I have rooted for the New York Giants AND the Dallas Cowboys since childhood, creating a cruel condition I wouldn’t wish on anyone. It’s like being Richard Williams when Venus and Serena play – you can’t fully celebrate with the winner because you love the loser just as much. Don’t let your kid develop such an ailment!
