Top 20 Cities Right to Be Pissed at their Sports Team(s)

Have you ever heard sports fans make the claim that they have seen the worst luck out of anybody? For some reason, it’s a contest of misery for some people and it has started a lot of arguments. While some Boston fans still think that they’re jinxed because the Red Sox went for so long without a title, it’s pretty clear that they have had some great luck over the past decade.

So now that Boston has erased themselves from the top of the bad luck list, who is left? Some cities in the United States (and Canada) have plenty of reason to be upset with their sports teams. Between bad ownership, a lack of results or teams bailing out on them, these cities can be downright depressing to live in since fans are chronically miserable.

There only needs to be one professional sports team in the four major sports (NFL, NBA, NHL and MLB) to make this list, and many different aspects were brought into consideration. So who makes the top 20? Here are the cities with fans that have the most right to be pissed at their sports team (or teams).

It’s hard to imagine that the last time a team from Minneapolis won a championship, it was the Twins in 1991. Since then, no team from the city has made a finals appearance. The Wild and Timberwolves have yet to reach a final, although the North Stars made it to two Stanley Cup Finals before their move to Dallas. The Vikings are 0-4 in Super Bowl appearances and had two of the most agonizing defeats of all time, first in the 1998 NFC Championship and in the 2009 season against the Saints.

The city that has the fans with the most right to be pissed at their teams is Cleveland, Ohio. It has been more than 50 years since the city has gotten to celebrate a title, and that came when the Browns won before the Super Bowl era. The Indians have the second longest championship drought in baseball at 67 years and the Cavaliers have never won a championship. Despite bringing back LeBron James and reaching the NBA Finals, they came up short this summer and people are starting to wonder if Cleveland will ever see another sports championship.
