Bragging Rights Are Shallow and Hollow Derbies are essentially all about dick-swinging (or, to provide equality, the rarer female equivalent … er, tit-swinging?). The bigger picture must always come before local pride, even if the latter feels intense in the moment, and in the days after. Winning...
