Bad Analogy:

As much as I hate being on the bad side of this analogy, we are the Yankees of this relationship. While Red Sox fans spend their every waking moment cursing the existence of George Steinbrenner and burning Bucky Dent and Aaron Boone in effigy, Yankee fans are at best dimly aware of their rivals? feelings. Whereas Cal?s entire sporting universe centers around beating Stanford, from our perspective Cal is just another, slightly more important opponent. Stanford students, by and large, just don?t care about Cal.

A) This guy has obviously never been in the bleachers at Yankees Stadium during a game against the BoSox. There's hatred. Maybe not the level of the Sox, but there is a level of pity, so the intense hatred would be unachievable.
2) Yankees fans "curse the existence of George Steinbrenner".
III) The biggest difference is that the Yankees win, and at least in Football the Card's been having a bit of trouble with that in the last few years.
