Found this site through The Panda's Thumb, I immediately saw that this can be used to decide once and for all the seething controversies in the Philippines.

First up, Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo vs Fernando Poe, Jr. - GMA should win this one, She was a cabinet undersecretary, a Senator, a Vice-President, and President of the Philippines, FPJ on the other hand was the undisputed King of Philippine movies and the number one opponent of GMA in the last elections. Even so, GMA should win.


Next, Corazon Aquino vs. Ferdinand Marcos - Tita Cory as she is fondly addressed by Filipinos should also win this one, she was the President from 1986 to 1992, the generation most comfortable with technology, Macoy on the other hand ruled the Philippines for 20 years from 1966 to 1986, and has a rabid loyalist following, he can score an upset.


Nora Aunor vs. Vilma Santos - The fight that has been raging for at least 3 decades, Ate Vi, should come out the winner, her career has had more staying power, she was able to get her husband elected to the Senate, she has won as Mayor of Lipa City. Ate Guy on the other hand was arrested in the US for drug possession, although that might tilt the fight in her favor.


La Salle vs Ateneo - This is a fight that is truly unpredictable, both schools have loyal alumni and undergrads. If we go by the number of UAAP basketball championships, La Sallle should win handily. If we go by the number of Alumni who became President of the Philippines then Ateneo should win (Both President Estrada and Macapagal-Arroyo acknowledge their Ateneo roots.


Lastly Crispa vs Toyota - The rivalry that should have ended in the early 80's when both basketball clubs were disbanded continues to this day in the minds of their most avid fans. Toyota should win this one because they have the larger and more dedicated fans, but as a Crispanatic I am pulling for my team


I forgot that Toyota is an internationally known brand name so it was really no contest :)

If you think of more rivalries try out googlefight, it's a great way to waste time.
