  • Happy Tenth Anniversary!
    Wow, I just realized that "Bitter Rivals" has been with us for 10 years.
    Although it's not as popular as it once was, we certainly had a lot of fun corresponding, (ripping each other up) over the years.
    I had a ball. Thanks to everyone who contributed!

      • Ten years. Incredible.
        In spite of Mattinglys' petition to get rid of me, :joking: I'm still here.

        I was just thinking back to all the fun so many people had here in these past 10 years.
        I'm amazed that my 'Bitter Rivals' thread has had almost 9,500 posts and a half million views from people all over the world! :disbelief:
        It just blows my mind.

        • I think the Rays have seriously started to develop a rivaliary between the Sox,Yanks and Rangers.

            The Rays have not been in existence that long, and they are not 225 miles from either Boston or NY

              I think you're right and I think they're going to be in the elite tier of teams for the foreseeable future which is necessary for developing a healthy, lasting rivalry.

                • With a small caveat to the Giants-Dodgers rivalry...

                  The discussion of other insignifcant rivalries in this thread is disappointing...

                  Nothing compares to Yankees-

                    • One of the things that makes the Yankees-Red Sox rivalry great is that the history of the two franchises are inextricably entwined. A well-informed Yankee fan will know a significant amount of BoSox history. Conversely, the knowledgeable BoSox fan* will be well versed in Yankee lore. No erudite discussion of either team’s history can take place without discussing the other. We are very familiar with each other… and everyone knows what familiarity breeds…

                        HIYA KEN!
                        Some of the very best baseball discussions I've had have been with Yankee fans, both in Fenway and in the Bronx.

                        Of course, most of the worst baseball interactions I've had have been with Yanks fans...wouldn't call them "discussions".

                          • Yankee fan all my life and have to respect the devotion of the Bosox fans, sticking by their team after so many close calls that ended in disappointments..... so many years.

                            2004 was a bitter pill to swallow as a Yankee fan.
                            But, first thing I did was go to the Bosox page and tip my hat.
                            Even when the rival is the other team, they pulled it off and then walked through the Cards in a sweep, that was some ballplaying by the Bosox.

                              One of the “bright sides” of my absence is that I wasn’t able to logon to this site in October 2004… I can’t imagine the abuse I would have suffered...
