What are some sports teams that have a large number of rivalries?

I am a fan of the New York Rangers hockey club. Part of the fun of being a Rangers fan is that the team is a part of an unusually large number of heated rivalries. Or maybe it's not so unusual. What other examples are there of sports teams that have many different rivals?

The Rangers have a minimum of three big time rivals and, depending on who you ask, more like six or seven of them.
Regardless of how exactly you count it, that's a lot of rivals. I'm not a native New Yorker and none of the sports teams from where I'm from originally had anything like that going on.
I was curious what other sports teams might be out there that have an exceptional number of rivals.
