Just find one of the hundreds of old threads and re-start them... You'll have a crowd of bickering posters in minutes...

Indianapolis and Columbus have a lot of similarities... size, demographics, capitols. But I wouldnt consider us rivals, I wish the best for both cities. Some people do consider us rivals though.

I just did that. I found an old post of San Francisco and read some of the threads. OMG, they are brutal. That is a true city rivalry.

Certain towns like San Bernardino are some of the most dangerous cities in the country. So yes, parts of it are 'ghetto'.

Houston knows very little of Chicago and Chicago cares very little about Houston. Dallas is Houston's rival.

The one I'd find most similar is Chicago.

Philly and Boston are big New York team sports rivals - Mets/Phillies, Giants/Patriots, Yankees/Red Sox, etc.
Not true at all, LA residents do not compare themselves to anyone and NYC residents do not compare themselves anyone as well, LA has way too much going on to have NYC on its mind Don't flatter yourself

I'd say New York's rivals are Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, London, and Paris.

For Chicago... probably Detroit (mainly sports), NYC (though it's somewhat unrequited) and really, probably no other city specifically. Maybe Toronto.

Perhaps some global cities it competes with for a piece of the global economic pie, but there's not a specific city.

I think we should acknowledge Houston and build a rivalry with them solely from responses in this thread.

Just cause the metro areas are about an hour away from each other and they're somewhat the same size (Madison is larger). I know they have nothing to do with each other culturally, just saw how they are both mid sized areas that are within an hour drive.

I don't know if it's necessarily considered a rivalry, but the Twin Cities (specifically Minneapolis) likes to compare itself with Seattle and Portland. I can't go a week around here without hearing a comparison in some category or the other.
