So many great sporting rivalries. Im biased but here is my top 5.
1. "Ashes" cricket, Australia vs England.
2. "State of Origin" Rugby League, New South Wales vs Queensland.
3. Bledisloe Cup Rugby, Australia vs New Zealand
4. England vs Argentina, Soccer.
5. Rangers vs Celtic / Inter vs AC Milan / Man U vs Arsenal
Fixed

There are far bigger rivalries in sport than Red Sox/Yankees, but for the sake of the thread, I'll go with Yankees. Red Sox are only just beginning to even the playing field.

I agree. Voted for the Red Sox because I support all of the New England teams.

Rangers/Celtic have played each other since 1888 and the Yanks/Sox rivalry comes no where close to comparing. There are so many more aspects to that rivalry then just the sport.

spot on, state of origin would be number 1 and bledisloe n2 though as the ashes arent really competitiive very often, thanks to us having the greatest sportsman ever shane warne so it mite change abit (if the IPL doesnt kill test cricket first)

Totally and completely biased:

Tie for 1st(in football):
Texas Longhorns v. Oklahoma Sooners
Texas Longhorns v. Texas A&M Aggies


Army/Navy is also sweet to watch every year.

Rangers / Celtic rivalry is pretty fierce but I would also say Liverpool Everton and Tottenham Arsenal are big.

You can't say Red Sox never win when they are 2nd in the division right now, only down 1.5 games, while the Yankees are last and down 5 games.

I agree with you about the Rugby and soccer rivalries. Those are some of the greatest ones in sports.
