What are some examples that you know of for coincidences in sports, especially over an extended period of time? for example, the Los Angeles Rams made it to their first super bowl in 1980, and they beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to do it. Nineteen years later, as the Bucs made their first NFC title game appearance since then, they played none other than the Rams (now based in St. Louis). Both games were low-scoring (7-3 and 10-7) as well. The Bengals made it to the Super Bowl twice in the 1980s and played the 49ers both times, and the Rockets made the NBA finals in 1981 and 1986, and had to face the Celtics both times. What others do you know of?
