15 Classic Championship Rematches

We’re now only a week away from Super Bowl XLVI—or as I like to think of it, only a week away from either Boston or New York losing a championship. And while I always enjoy watching fans in Boston or New York suffer the agony of defeat, this year there’s an even bigger storyline that you’ll be hearing about until next Monday: the rematch.

Yes, as we all know—and as we all will be reminded 500 times this week, then another 200-300 times during the game next Sunday—this year’s Super Bowl is a rematch of Super Bowl XLII back in 2008. So to celebrate Brady vs. Manning Part II, I thought it might be nice to do a list of classic championship rematches.

Here are 15 of them. Are they the 15 “greatest” championship rematches? Yes, absolutely. No question about it. So you should probably check it out.
