Football's Most Dangerous Rivalry 4.5
UCn8zNIfYAQNdrFRrr8oibKw

The rivalry between football clubs Rangers and Celtic goes past typical name calling and dives into violence, racial slurs and pure hatred.

The rivalry between Glasgow's "Old Firm" sides is the most famous in world football. It's the game's flagship loathing, proof of the power of the sport to inspire profound levels of tribal loyalty and a near-Pavlovian revulsion at anything to do with a rival. We examine the situation and try to get a handle on the political, religious, and national identity clashes that have shaped the rivalry, speak to fanzine editors on both sides of the divide and travel with the Bhoys' away support to a match at Tannadice.

A few years ago, my brother was in Glasgow. After checking into his hotel, he went to bar next door for a beer. As soon as he walked in the entire bar went silent. Almost immediately guys burst up out of their seats and advanced on him. The bartender pointed at my brother: "YOU!! GET THE FUCK OUTTA HERE!!"
Turns out my brother had stumbled into a Rangers bar wearing a green jacket!
He had no clue of the rivalry. He said, "What the hell did I do?!?"
Instantly the bartender realized the situation: "EASE UP LADS! HE'S A YANK!" My brother said, "Yeah. I'm from California." The whole bar relaxed, and several fans came over to explain to my brother the rivalry and it's history...and they bought all his beers for him too! They ended up being really cool to him.
He later told me he thought he was going to wake up in a hospital, or worse.

Old Glesga joke: An American tourist is lost on Paisley Road West while trying to get to the Southern General Hospital. He goes into a local pub and asks the bartender: "Uh, do you know the quickest way to the Southern General from here?" To which the barkeep quickly responds: "Aye, sure pal, just shout 'Fuck the Rangers' and ye'll be there in five minutes."

(I'm a Celtic fan btw)

I wonder how these guys dealt with Rangers' bankruptcy and Celtic owning Scotland for so many years in a row.
