No disrespect though, I love America. ;)
American sports rivalries are pretty weak. The dislike between Lakers and Celtics fans doesn't even compare to any of the rivalries in say, Serie A. Opposing fans literally belt the sh*t out of each other prior to some derbies. Don't get me started on the chanting. "Boston sucks"? How lame is that, seriously.
The 'hate' seems a bit forced IMO.
