Forbes loves to make lists. Their latest: The 10 most miserable sports cities.
Here's their list:
5. San Diego
9. Kansas City
Personally, I think Cleveland should be a little higher on the list. Sure, they won a few NFL championships in the pre-Super Bowl era, but let's be serious... how many of us even were alive for those?
Most Atlanta teams are pretty disappointing, but the Braves were dominant throughout the entire 90s. They only walked away with one World Series championship, but they were definitely contenders.
Cities like Cleveland and Buffalo not only haven't tasted a championship in years, they haven't really been a contender in most sports for a while. The Cavaliers were contenders with LeBron, but The Decision pretty much wipes that out.
As far as Phoenix goes, the Diamondbacks won an unforgettable World Series over the Yankees in 2001, and most of their teams are too young to really even make the list, in my opinion. And San Diego... do people even care? They're in San Diego, one of the most beautiful cities on Earth.
Another team that should be higher: Seattle. Not only have they had some serious trouble winning, they lost their basketball team. Right when they got Kevin Durant. That hurts.
For me, Cleveland should top the list. Some might disagree, but for as long as I can remember, they've been the embodiment of miserable sports teams. Sorry guys.
