America’s 10 Most Miserable Sports Cities

favre

How does a team make their fans feel miserable? Losing a lot is one way. But so is the tease, building up their hopes before letting them down. Teams from these 10 cities have toyed with their fans the most over the years. Misery points are awarded for postseason records – the later you lose the more points you get – supplemented by other factors like fewest championships per season and the length of a city’s current championship drought. Candidates are limited to those cities with at least 75 cumulative MLB, NFL, NBA, and NHL seasons.

No. 9: Minneapolis
Teams: Vikings, Twins, Timberwolves, Lakers, Wild, North Stars

Championship Round Record: 7-8
Semifinal Round Record: 12-18
Seasons/championships: 184/7
Last title: 1991
The Vikings were 0-4 in Super Bowls long before the Bills were.

I needed therapy after the 2009 Vikings season.
