Well for all you sports buffs out there, feel free to post away. What do you think is the BEST rivalry in sports?
I'll list my picks(although according to recent survey the Yankees and Red Sox won it, as well as Sports IllustratedI have to say I agree...) but I'll list my top 5 picks ;)
As a sports buff, these are my top picks in Sports:
#1. (MLB) New York Yankees vs. Boston Red Sox-Easily #1 out there & the oldest, between the history(since the 1920's), never ending saga and the fact that the organizations and fans deep down hate each other, and to this day compete over players before the other can do so, combined with their history makes it easily at the top of the list and #1 in Baseball by far....as well as sports overall. Every Yankees/Red Sox game to this day is crazy, long, interesting and sold out.
#2 (NFL) Red Skins vs. Dallas Cowboys-Much like the Yankees/ Red Sox, it's just not comparable in NFL with any other rivalry...these two are big rivals, have some history and continues to be big to this day.
#3. (NBA) LA Lakers vs. Boston Celtics-ever since the 80's thru present, there's been a bit of a rivalry between these two.
#4.(NFL) Patriots vs. Colts- Both teams have a huge rivalry, especially of late...
#5. U. of North Carolina Tar Hells vs. U. of Duke Blue Devils(NCAA Basketball)
New York Yankees vs. New York Metropolitans(MLB)
Green Bay Packers vs. Chicago Bears(NFL)
Chicago Browns vs. Pittsburgh Steelers(NFL)
L.A. Dodgers vs. S.F. Giants(MLB)
Chicago Cubs vs. St. Louis Cardinals(MLB)
New York Rangers vs. New Jersey Devils(NHL)
