Daily Discussion: Underrated Rivalries

This year's NCAA Tournament has lacked the storybook drama for which so many Big Dances of yesteryear will forever be remembered. That is, until Kentucky finally put away Baylor in last weekend's South Regional final, setting up one of the most-anticipated national semifinals in recent memory between blood rivals Kentucky and Louisville. I think we were all aware that the Wildcats and Cardinals, because they both hail from the Bluegrass State, are not fond of each other.

But only a truly vitriolic rivalry could produce the sort of hilariously disturbing news that came out of Georgetown, Kentucky this week. According to a police report, a 68-year old Kentucky fan flipped off a 71-year old Louisville fan after the latter made a comment that he thought his team would win Saturday's game...prompting the elderly Cardinals fan to punch the Wildcat fan in the face. The real kicker, though, is that this all took place at a dialysis clinic. America!

I think most of our readers are big fans of sports hatred, but also- like me- get a little tired of hearing about the same old rivalries: Yankees/Red Sox, Michigan/Ohio State, Bears/Packers, etc. Since we're a little short on material these days, I'm going to ask you to help keep everyone else entertained by sharing with us some stories about underrated rivalries and the hate that flows amongst the adversaries within them.
