Since both mascots are mortal enemies of each other, one would assume the teams would normally be hostile towards the other in real life (I kid, I kid!).
But honestly these are 2 teams with bruised egos who failed to make it to the playoffs last year (despite their talent—or rather lack thereof).
Both teams have scores to settle & if they can not settle it with victories then they will take their frustrations out on each other.
I guess they will not be doing that again—at least for another few years…
