This afternoon, ESPN had a countdown of the ten greatest rivalries in sports, a list that included Bruins/Habs, UConn/Tennessee, Harvard/Yale, Barça/Madrid, Ohio State/Michigan, Packers/Bears, Lakers/Celtics, Army/Navy, Duke/UNC, and Yanks/Sox.
Whereas many of the rivalries picked deserve to be on there, there are a few glaring omissions. I also disagree with their ranking of them (Duke-UNC at #2? Are you ranking rivalries or selling Dicky V's cable package?). So here are a few rivalries, in no particular order, that I think deserve to be in the conversation.
