Which Championship Means More?

ThomasSenior Writer IOctober 5, 2008

I recently went to the NFL Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, with my family. The favorite part for my brother was the Vince Lombardi trophy (that's him in the photo).

For any football fan, winning the Super Bowl is the best thing that can happen. However, ask a baseball fan what he would rather win, he'd say the World Series.

I'm asking you, the Bleacher Report Community, to tell me what championship means more. Here's the different championships you have to choose from. I know you can't compare sports, but it's a question that's been bugging me for a while.


1. The Super Bowl

Sport: Football

Last season's winner: New York Giants

The Super Bowl is the biggest and most anticipated night in the NFL. Held in February, it pits the best of the AFC against the best of the NFC. The winner gets the Vince Lombardi trophy and bragging rights for the next season.


2. The World Series

Sport: Baseball

Last season's winner: Boston Red Sox

The World Series is held every October and is often called the Fall Classic. The best team from the American League play against the best team from the National League. Whoever wins the best of seven games gets the trophy and is called the best baseball team in the world.


3. The Stanley Cup

Sport: Hockey

Last season's winner: Detroit Red Wings


Unlike other major trophies, there is no new Stanley Cup each year. Instead, the old team gives it to the new team. The best teams from the Eastern Conference and the Western Conference face off in a series of seven games. The winner of the best of seven takes home the cup.


4. The NBA Finals

Sport: Basketball

Last season's winner: Boston Celtics

The NBA Finals is a highlight in my town. I don't know why, it just is. The final puts the best of the East against the best of the West. The series is in a 2-3-2 playoff format with the best of seven taking home the trophy.


5. The NCAA Men's Basketball Championship

Sport: College basketball

Last season's winner: Kansas Jayhawks

Better known as March Madness, the NCAA men's basketball competition comes to its highpoint during the playoffs. During the month of March, 65 teams have a shot to make it to the final. Yet, only two do make it. The team who wins the final game is known as the best NCAA basketball team in the country.


6. The BCS National Championship Game

Sport: College football

Last season's winner: LSU

Ok, so the current playoff setup is a mess. It's still not fixed yet. Anyways, the BCS Championship brings the top two ranked teams in the nation together to fight it out for numero uno.


So there are the choices my friends. It's your turn to choose which championship you think means more.
