Some of the most memorable moments in Chicago Cubs history have come against their biggest foes.

One of the beautiful things about a sports rivalry is when two sides are competing at their highest levels, fighting for superiority and bragging rights over the other. Even the years in which the Cubs were not playing their best baseball, there have still been plenty of heated moments in the battles against their arch-rivals.

Aside from the players and coaches going head-to-head, the fanbases amongst teams are what makes a rivalry what it is. There is nothing better than having the upper hand and talking some smack against your friend, family member, or whoever is rooting against your team’s opponent.

This weekend’s crosstown series against the White Sox reminds us of some memorable moments between the Cubs and their arch-rivals. Also, we’ll not discuss the first game of the series.
