Rantankerous [ran-tank'uhr-us] (adjective) - A combination of rant [to speak in a wild or extravagant manner] and cantankerous [contentious, disagreeable]. The word is the only suitable description for the epic arguments between Brian "What We Learned" Tynes and George "Hot Reads" Jones.

(RNN) - Sly Stallone vs. Robert De Niro; Roy Hobbs vs. Nuke LaLoosh; Snow White vs. Sleeping Beauty - yep, it's going to be that type of day.

In honor of the premier of the new movie Grudge Match - featuring the actors who played boxers Jake LaMotta and Rocky Balboa - our minds wandered to the nether regions of sports and cinema.

So we asked: who would win in battles between featured characters in some of the most notable flicks in history?

Also this week: The embarrassment of fantasy football… prosthetic limbs in sports… bowl picks!
