Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

South Africa vs Australia (any sport)

Isn't it great when there's mutual dislike for Australian sporting teams? The Brits hate them, the New Zealanders hate them, the South Africans hate them...

The Yankee-Red Sox rivalry is well-documented and still fun to watch.

International sporting rivalries, LMP, international. Had it been regional, I would have mentioned Liverpool FC vs Everton FC and the Montreal Canadiens vs the Toronto Maple Leafs.

I'm not much of a hockey guy, I did see a few Lightning games though.

I'm more of a basketball guy.

The Celtics/Lakers Rivalry of the 1980s

North Carolina/Duke

The Bulls/Knicks Rivalry of the 1990s

Ohio State/Michigan


They're not international but they're the best. Especially those Celtics/Lakers and Bulls/Knicks rivalries. Some of the greatest basketball series' ever played.

hell, even the Knicks/Heat one in the late '90s was pretty good for a while.

Bill Russell/Wilt Chamberlain rivalry in the '60s and '70s.
