D.C. ranked as ninth most miserable sports city

Forbes ranked the country’s 10 most miserable sports cities, and decided that Washington belonged at No. 9. They went far into the city’s sports history in the four major sports, and came up with this justification:

Teams: Redskins, Senators l, Senators II, Nationals, Wizards, Capitals
Championship Round Record: 7-11
Semi-Final Round Record: 10-2
Total Seasons/Championships: 239/7
Last Title: 1992
Some nice history from the Redskins. Otherwise, a slew of postseason ousters with only two other titles in 1924 and 1978.

Forbes used only championships as a barometer for misery, and I suppose if a title is all you want as a sports fan, then it’s a fair assessment. Perhaps “least successful” might be a better way to describe the list.

But you guys would know best. Are you miserable?

Such a bro.


QUOTE OF THE NIGHT

John Wall, on his $80 million contract:

“I’ll never let money change me. I’m already motivated. But this is motivation to another level. The only thing you can do is win now. If you’re not winning what’s the point of getting the contract? You’re still going to get your money but you’re not going to have no fun. It’s no point in having it and not being happy.”
