Now for my plea- I know that the rivalry between these two teams is really intense because of the history and all that, but let's not let ourselves get caught up in all of the crap that comes with that.  I understand there is going to be trash talking and that is fine with me, but please try to stay away from the name calling and all of that crap that tends to happen.  We have a great site here, and I hate to see it go in the crapper just because of a few bad eggs.  Thank you.  That is all.
