Competing in a sport is no game. It’s intense. The competition is fierce. Emotions can run high. Reputations are on the line. So it is no surprise that intense rivalries can develop between players and teams. As a loyal fan watching in the stands or on TV, you can get just as emotional and excited as the players you’re watching. Imagine your team is about to wallop their biggest rival, when out of the blue, someone on the other team makes an insane play, shot, catch, or hit. Game over! Your team just lost! Go ahead, scream. Arrrgh! It didn’t happen. Impossible. You’ll be talking and arguing about it for weeks. And that’s why the greatest sports rivalries are the greatest shows on earth.
