2: Pittsburgh ('16 Penguins) [NHL, MLB, NFL]
2: Cleveland ('16 Cavaliers) [NBA, MLB, NFL]
1: Chicago ('16 Cubs) [ALL]
0: Boston ('16 Patriots) [ALL]

(*) - City moved up at least one place in the standings in the most recent update.

Ties are broken in favor of cities that have never won a championship, then by cities that have had the most time elapse since their last championship.

In the above, I lump teams that are in the same market together. Thus, the Giants, Jets, Devils, Rangers, Islanders, Nets, Knicks, Yankees and Mets are all "New York". I consider the AFL to be an equivalent "major" league from 1960-65 since they had their own championship prior to playing the NFL champion in what would become the SuperBowl following the 1966 season. Also, I show AFL/NFL champions in the year the season was played, regardless of whether the championship occurred in December or January of the following year. Currently, the championships occur in this order: NHL, NBA, MLB, NFL; prior to the 2006, the NBA Finals occured prior to the Stanley Cup.

The list does NOT include cities who have had major league teams in the past but who are sports-less today (like Fort Wayne, Rochester and Omaha). The list also lumps all of Canada together and treats it as one "city".

Just read through this thread because of the recent bumps -- great work, kenbuzz!

I've often debated what is the greater futility--not winning championships or not even making it to the postseason? Cleveland fans have suffered, but they've had some good, entertaining teams in recent years--some that have competed at a championship level.

Of course, that's a whole other debate...one that I had with folks prior to the Cards winning in '06. I was talking with friends who cheered on the Cubs and while they were bemoaning not making it to the World Series in forever, I pointed out that the Cards had made it ('85, '87, '04) and lost in ugly fashion... Whose pain is worse? Who can say for sure.

Poor Cleveland?

What about San Diego - it's been a year longer for San Diego since our last title than for Cleveland, AND we've lost TWO NBA teams (Rockets, Clippers).

San Diego has never won a World Series OR Super Bowl, and has just ONE AFL Championship to our credit. We've been teased many times over the years with good teams, but they've never come through with the big win.

Believe me, sports fans in San Diego are frustrated like you wouldn't believe.

Well, it's not like San Diego is a real city or anything. Maybe kinda on par with Tampa or Charlotte. Most of the residents just jumped on the bandwagon when they moved there within the last 10 years or so.

I know you're kidding, but there is some of that attitude out there. 7th largest city in the country and we still get no respect - no respect I tellya!

That's because the state workers got shut out:

Quote:
The Denver Post

Article Last Updated: 10/19/2007 07:17:25 PM MDT

A plan for state emergency workers to buy World Series tickets using work computers has been quashed after 9News obtained a memo on the proposal.

Employees at the Colorado Emergency Operations Center in Centennial were encouraged in an office e-mail this morning to attempt to buy World Series tickets using their fast, state-owned supercomputers, 9News reported.

"I need volunteers to help push the buttons in attempting access. You will need to use break time, lunch time or leave time to do this and the only real perk I can offer right now is that if someone does not pay for their tickets within 3 days, you will get first crack at them," said David Holm, who had recently been acting director of the Division of Emergency Management.

The e-mail says workers were going to start at around 9:30 a.m. on Monday morning. The tickets are set to go on sale on ColoradoRockies.com on Monday at 10 a.m.

Susan Kirkpatrick, the executive director of the Department of Local Affairs, approved the plan, according to the e-mail.

Dunno. I'll certainly go back and check, though my spreadsheet clearly shows NO MLB champion in 1994. Perhaps since the season was played but there was no playoffs, I might be counting the season as a non-championship one for all cities with MLB teams that year.

As I said, I dunno, but I'll check here during lunch.

1994 should count, IMO.

I tend to agree, but I still need to double-check the numbers to ensure that that assumption was used for all of the cities surveyed.

So far, I've not yet found any other city whose count is off. I don't know how Phoenix got off by one, but all of the other cities (especially those whose last championship came pre-1994) seem to be correct. If anyone comes up with something different than what I've posted above, please let me know and I'll double-check your work, but I think these numbers are correct.

Note, I apparently *am* counting the 1994 MLB season as played for all MLB cities, even though there was no champion that year. This is different than the 2005 NHL season which was cancelled outright.

You can add 1 more year to Cleveland's total, since the Titans just beat the Colts to beat out the Browns for the 6th AFC playoff spot.

Yaay, not only did Tennessee's win knock the Brownies out, but the fact that the Colts lost AND scored under 16 points won me and my family a steak dinner at my boss's expense!

We bet during preseason on the Colts and Bengals. Whichever won more games against common opponents would earn a steak dinner, with total points scored in those games as the tiebreaker. Cincy went 3-2, with wins over Baltimore (twice) and Tennessee, and losses to KC and New England. Indy was 3-1, having lost to New England. The tiebreaker was 116-100 Bengals going into the final game, so either a Colt victory OR Indy putting 17 points on the board would've cost me, but I dodged both (thank you Jim Sorgi!) and me and my family will be dining well in January!

Seems to me that Milwaukee and Green Bay should be considered one market. For years, the Packers played 3 regular season games in Milwaukee County Stadium and even today, they still have the Milwaukee Season Ticket Package (3-games + 1 preseason) for Packer games.

Interesting observation. If they were combined into a single "Wisconsin" market (with NFL, NBA and MLB teams), they would have gone 22 seasons since a championship, their most recent being the '96 Packers. Well, 21, considering the recent non-NHL year. The market would drop from 6th to 23rd, sitting between Sacramento and Orlando.
