The top 20 sports rivalries

http://www.suntimes.com/output/sport...t-rival09.html

Cowboys-Redskins: In the beginning, it was Tom Landry vs. George Allen, and each was disliked by the other side. Now, it's Jerry Jones vs. Daniel Snyder, and the hatred runs deeper. One of the reasons the Cowboys remain in the NFC East after realignment is because of this rivalry. The Redskins' problem is much like the Bears' is with the Packers -- they haven't found much success against the Cowboys in the last 10 seasons.

Just a few comments on the rivalries suggested above:

POKER: You must have on your list here Doyle Brunson vs. Amarillo Slim. If you don't know those gentlemen, you do not know poker. Suggested reading: "Living in a World of Fat People" by Amarillo Slim. (Title may not be exact; I'm doing this from memory and senior moments happen...)


NFL: You might want to add Bills/Pats to the list. Rams/49ers was big until the Rams moved east...


BOXING: Add Tony Zale/Rocky Grazziano to the mix.

NFL: 'Skins- Cowboys (of course)
College Football: Army-Navy (the best pure rivalry in sports)
College B-Ball: I'll go with Georgetown-St. Johns back in the day.
NBA: Lakers-Celtics (again back in the day)
NHL: too many to name, but I'll go with one that I have personally been involved in: Caps- Flyers.
Boxing: tempting to go with Ali-Frazier, but I'll be different. I'll go way back with Jake LaMotta vs. Sugar Ray Robinson.
Soccer: Glasgow Celtic vs. Glasgow Rangers. The Old Firm. People who live over there know what I'm talking about. This rivalry has it all. Ethnic, political, and religous rivalries come into play here. At least one fan usually ends up dead after this one.
Baseball: I'll go back in time to the Giants- Dodgers lovefests when both were in NY.

BrudLee:

Mark Twain said that the only difference between a cynic and a realist is whether or not you agree with him.


I prefer to think of myself as a realist. You are free to think whatever you will on this matter.

I think the biggest rivalry on here might have been between the moderators last week to try and get votes

greatest warpath rivalry? That's a tough one, but the words "Peter King" come to mind if you get my drift and how about Daseal vs. Everyone Else. Daseal is the man! Defending his boys TO and Spurrier to the death! Might not agree with him but you gotta respect him
