My Favorite Rivalries...

I'm a flight attendant, and some A-Hole yesterday wore a Dodgers hat on my plane.  He wasn't just sporting it as a fashion statement either.  The brim was curved, and he had a pin attached to it.  He was a real life Dodger fan.  I thought it was odd, because we were in Orlando.  What was annoying was that he was sitting in my section for service.  I had a really bad, long day, and I politely asked if he would take his hat off for the whole flight, as a favor to me.  He politely said, "No. I don't think so."

"Come on, Dude.  It's been a long day, and looking at that hat is killing me.  I'll buy you a beer!"

"Sorry."

Then he went back to watching his Food Network, Animal Planet or something equally gay, I am sure.  I go to thinking, I'm lucky to be a Giants fan because not every team has a bitter rivalry like we do with the Dodgers.  So I listed what I thought were baseball's greatest rivalries:

  1. Yankees v Red Sox.  Historically it's not even a good rivalry because the Yanks always just POUNDED the Sox every year, but it's been great in recent times.
  2. Cardinals v Cubs.  One of the best rivalries in sports but way out of the national media's focus.
  3. Mets v Braves.  Mets fans hate them some Braves fans, let me tell you.
  4. White Sox v Bookies.  See: 1919 Black Sox Scandal or the movie Eight Men Out.
  5. Tampa Bay v Attendance.
  6. Mariners v Keeping Franchise Players
  7. Angels v Sensible Marketing
  8. Padres v Their Own Feeling of Self-Importance... or Padres v Barry Bonds
  9. Pirates v Winning
  10. Marlins v Fire Sale
  11. Nationals v Expos
  12. Rockies v Humidor
  13. A's v $'s
  14. Cincinatti v Ken Griffey's Legs
  15. Bud Selig v Integrity
