Welcome everybody to the much anticipated finals of this tournament. I would like to thank everyone who voted in any of the previous rounds because you have done a great thing. Now it is down to only the best of the best. It's the finals! There was a big shock in the semi finals. What was it? Well you are about to find out!

Championship Bracket

1) Calgary Flames Vs Vancouver Canucks (Hockey)

There were some points where it looked like this rivalry may have been ready to pack it's bags, but it didn't happen. The people pulled the Vancouver/Calgary rivalry all the way to the finals. This is without a doubt one of hockey's most well known rivalries. It always has brawls, always has great goals, flashy saves, and everything else a great rivalry should have! Flames/Canucks knocked off Flames/Oilers and Cowboys/Redskins in the semi finals.


2) New York Yankees Vs Boston Red Sox (Baseball)

Is there a sports fan in the world out there that does not know of the Yankees/Sox rivalry. This has been baseball's best rivalry for quite some time. It has the great games plus the brawls. These two teams have a hatred for each other which makes it even greater. It is simply a classic. Sox/Yanks knocked knocked off Boston Celtics/Los Angeles Lakers while drawing with Leafs/Habs.


3) Toronto Maple Leafs/Montreal Canadiens (Hockey)

You couldn't keep this rivalry from the finals. In the semis it survived a scare, but in the end there was one man who pulled it to a tie between them and Yanks/Sox. Toronto/Montreal is arguably the greatest hockey rivalry in sports today. It has it's history going back to the Original 6 days where almost every year the Leafs and Canadiens would meet in the finals and battle it out for the Stanley Cup. It was truly a must see. Leafs/Habs drawed with Yankees/Red Sox while knocking off Boston/LA.

Well there you go. The moment of truth which rivalry will be crowned the greatest rivalry of all time? Vote below and we shall see.
