What are the shortest life spans for sports leagues?

After watching this special on Arena Football, I was just trying to think of what leagues have lasted a short amount of time.

The XFL lasted only one year.

Any others in sports history whether it be baseball, hockey, soccer, basketball?

The World Football League 1974-75 lasted a year and a half and the American Basketball League early 60's -I think lasted the same length of time.The Federal Baseball League 1914-15 lasted 2 seasons.

There is another league that hopes to play next season-World Hockey Association-but most opinions think It will never gett off the ground.

Wasn't there an American football league 10-15 years ago that folded after a year? The only thing that I remember about it is that Raleigh had a team and they didn't win a game...
