14 Hilariously Obvious (And Imaginary) Inter-Sports Rivalries Based Solely on Team Names

Yankees-Red Sox. Cowboys-Redskins. Celtics-Lakers. They’re some of the fiercest and most storied rivalries in sports, but there are plenty of teams who should have it in for other franchises in other leagues on the basis of nothing more than their names.

You’ve probably never stopped to think about it – why would you? – but if you look at the names of teams in the various big four sports, you’ll see plenty are ready-made for different rivalries. And that’s what we’ve done here. We examined teams from the NFL, the NHL, the NBA and MLB to determine which would be the best rivalries based on nothing more than their monikers. One rule: these imagined rivalries must feature teams from different sports, so that Mariners-Pirates one, for instance, doesn’t qualify.

So, without further ado, here’s a look at the most compelling sports matchups between teams in different sports that will never blossom into full-fledged rivalries, but we really wish could.
