One of the things that makes sports so special are rivalry games. These games aren’t just another date on the calendar. They are the first date fans look for every year when the new season schedule comes out. They are the games that make fans scream “ROLL TIDE!” or “WAR EAGLE!” in the streets of Alabama at each other. They are the games that make you the last person to get served a pint when you wear a Yankees hat into a Boston bar. They are the reason I bought an Ohio flag for my house to counteract my neighbor’s Team Up North flag that casts gloom upon our neighborhood.
