    In listening to Rance and Gubicza while recording our podcast, I was reminded of what can make sports compelling entertainment-players who ache to win and are tormented by a loss. I think you can hear both in this podcast. Those feelings may diminish over time, but they do not vanish. That is one beauty of a sports rivalry-the contest mattered then and matters now.
