Everyone’s Rival

Every team has a rival. It’s the big game of the year. We circle the date our teams will play each other on the calendar. Teams with a poor record can salvage their season a bit if they can manage to beat their rival. There are a few teams that get the privilege to become everyone’s rival. These are the teams that draw the envy of everyone else because of their constant success. Everyone circles their week on the schedule. Everyone plays up that week for a chance to knock the giant down. Not everyone can take the pressure of being the constant target, but those that earn it know the endurance required to meet everyone’s best every week.
