Rivalry

Sports are great and rivalries make them even better. Everyone has a favorite sports team, and most teams have a rival that you hate. The Giants hate the Dodgers, the Seahawks hate the 49ers, the Celtics hate the Lakers, the Red Sox hate the Yankees (and so does everyone else). A good rivalry makes the game more intense and interesting. There is more at stake when you are playing your enemies. It’s pride, it’s honor, it’s bragging rights. You can have a losing season but still feel like champions if you beat your rivals. Case in point, I’m a Giants fan. We had a mediocre season last year, while the Dodgers won the division and went on to the playoffs. But the Giants beat the Dodgers in the season series, so at least I have something to rub in the faces of Dodgers fans. It’s not much, but it’s something so I’ll take it.
