Book Review: Yankees vs. Red Sox. Duke vs. North Carolina. Cowboys vs. Redskins. Across sports, genders, coasts, and levels of play, impassioned fans beget rivalries, and rivalries bring down thehouse, stadium, court, and rink every time a match-up is staged. From Ohio State football coach Woody Hayes ordering his team to go for two when they'd already shattered Michigan-because, in his words, "they wouldn't let us go forthree"-to the in-your-face rhymes boxer Muhammed Ali composed for chief rival Joe Frazier, Greatest Sports Rivalries brings together highlights, statistics, and stories from twenty-five of the most notable and entertainingface-offs the athletic world has ever seen. Though the players range from ice skaters to racehorses, from cycling powerhouses to rotund golfers, the fan intensity behind the rivalries remains constant, and the quiet respect thatwell matched teams, coaches, and individual athletes often develop for one another makes these competitions great. With spectacular color photos of sports' legendary moments, packed stat boxes, and play-by-play accounts of nail-bitingvictories and unexpected heartbreaks, sportswriters James Buckley Jr. and David Fischer take us on a breakneck tour of sports in America, teaching us that overall records don't matter . . . the bragging rights do.
