Ri-val-ry

Posted at 3:57 PM on August 21, 2006 by Ben Tesch

I'm not sure if you knew this, but there is apparently a rivalry between the Yankees and Red Sox. Who knew? I didn't. Surprisingly, the game between the two was on FOX this weekend, so I was able to get the run-down. Lucky for me they also spared no expense on the background of this rivalry. Not only did this recap last almost 30 minutes, but they were able to talk to current and former players (and many more) all about it. They even laid out the definition of rivalry, and showed many historical clips of the preceding events.

I took a bathroom break somewhere in between the interviews with Bill Buckner's grandma and Bucky Dent's mailman about their thoughts on the Boston Massacre, so I may have missed something good. Lucky for me, for the next weekend series they play, I will get to hear it all over again.

(By the way, the Yankees just swept the 5-game series. Time for FOX to come up with a new catchy name for this one to add to the highlight clips!)
