what is the best rivalry in Professional sports

i think it's the St. Louis Cardinals and Chicago Cubs

don't start arguing everyone will be biased toward there favorite team

Yankees-Red Sox. Not just because I'm a Yanks fan either. The rivalry spans many years, and since both teams usually play well, it makes for great baseball.

Personally I don't think you can argue against this rivalry as being the greatest of the four major sports. The fans' passions for each team are just so deep as well.

any original six hockey game, esp a few Leafs-Canadiens, then some new ones like Philly - Jersey, and any local teams like oilers - flames, and leafs - sens
best could just be Wings-Avs, after all the •••• thats gone on in the playoffs between - like the bloody brawl with mccarthy, claude lemieux etc. where even the goalies went nuts

Vikings and Packers....

Minnesota versus Wisconsin in the dead of winter...not a pretty sight. And we're talking some deep fan passion here too.

By Itziar (Itziar) on Saturday, May 22, 2004 - 07:24 am: Edit

Definitely Red Sox-Yankees.

By Epk (Epk) on Sunday, May 23, 2004 - 01:11 am: Edit

I third the Sox-Yanks vote.



^ ^
NY Sox

By Allena (Allena) on Sunday, May 23, 2004 - 04:39 am: Edit

I've got to go with the Red Sox vs. Yankees as well...

Though I'm a huge hockey fan, and the Red Wings vs. Avalanch battle can be pretty heated at times.

I second Vikings-Packers, but how about Bears-Packers. NFC North is brutal...

Yankees-Red Sox is probably most famous but my favorite is Lakers-Kings
Lakers>Kings of course

By Bunmushroom (Bunmushroom) on Monday, May 24, 2004 - 07:57 pm: Edit

Yankees-Sox
Dodgers-Giants

Lakers-Kings

By Noodleman (Noodleman) on Monday, May 24, 2004 - 08:21 pm: Edit

Yankees/Red Sox
Yankees/Brooklyn Dodgers

By Epk (Epk) on Monday, May 24, 2004 - 11:26 pm: Edit

Satan?

My Fav is the AFC North

Each Team is a rival of the other three

The Steelers Hate the Ravens Who Were the Browns who Hate the Bengals

RAIDERS!!!!! :) AND THE 49ers.

By Magoo (Magoo) on Wednesday, July 21, 2004 - 12:04 am: Edit

By Princess_Banana (Princess_Banana) on Wednesday, July 21, 2004 - 02:04 am: Edit

what about the Raiders-Chargers?
because they used to be in LA (the raiders did) so they were a close and easy rival. and they both suck!

we always need extra security at those games

By Magoo (Magoo) on Wednesday, July 21, 2004 - 04:04 am: Edit

CHARGERS...ARE U SERIOUS...i shutter at the thought of someone caring...

im a fan of the raiders though we have fallen on hard times...:(

leave me alone.

By Haithman (Haithman) on Wednesday, July 21, 2004 - 04:07 am: Edit

Redskins vs. Cowboys...
Damn you Cowpukes!!

By Lethalfang (Lethalfang) on Wednesday, July 21, 2004 - 04:15 am: Edit

San Francisco 49ers vs. Dallas Cowboys, unfortunately this rivary is dying due to NFL parity.

By Futurepres (Futurepres) on Wednesday, July 21, 2004 - 05:34 am: Edit

ever- Celtics vs Pistons

By Alicia129 (Alicia129) on Wednesday, July 21, 2004 - 07:19 pm: Edit

Definitely Red Sox-Yankees

Epk, loved your post in response to Noodleman. Brilliant :) (sorry, diehard Sox fan! had to be complimented :))

By Geniusash (Geniusash) on Wednesday, July 21, 2004 - 07:22 pm: Edit

Vikings & Packers

By Eclinchy (Eclinchy) on Saturday, July 24, 2004 - 11:46 pm: Edit

I don't think anyone who saw today's game can possibly dispute Yankees-Red Sox.

By Craigk10 (Craigk10) on Saturday, July 24, 2004 - 11:58 pm: Edit

That was awesome.

By Mtmomtok (Mtmomtok) on Sunday, July 25, 2004 - 12:01 am: Edit

By Riflesforwatie (Riflesforwatie) on Sunday, July 25, 2004 - 08:15 pm: Edit

Pro sports rivalries stink.

College rivalries are cooler.... the best there are the following:

Tobacco Road (Duke and North Carolina)
Red River Shootout (Texas and Oklahoma)
Kentucky and Louisville
Michigan and Michigan State and Ohio State
Bedlam (Oklahoma State and Oklahoma)
Florida State and Miami FL

The Big Game:
Cal vs. Stanford, with the Axe as the trophy for the victor.

By Hunter1985 (Hunter1985) on Sunday, July 25, 2004 - 08:49 pm: Edit

Historically:

Packers vs. Bears

Now:

Vikings vs. Packers
-So much bad blood, especially fueled by that punk Chris Hovan who had his ass handed to him last season. Always a split- we can't win in Minny, they can't win in GB. Although I must thank the Vikes for letting us into the Playoffs last year- although our Defense blew it.

:)

Other good ones:

Yankees/Red Sox
Red Wings/Avalanch
NC/Duke
