By gathering several records, results, seasons, championships, and more, Forbes.com‘s Tom Van Riper and Andrew Farrell determined the nation’s most miserable sports cities. Philadelphia was ranked ninth.
Farrel and Van Riper explained the details:
“The A’s five World Series titles are the most championships by any team in Philly’s history–and they left town in 1955. Just call the rest of the city’s sports landscape “Bridesmaids ‘R’ Us.” Since 1980, Philadelphia’s four mainstays–the Eagles, Phillies, Flyers and Sixers, are a combined 1-for-12 in the finals.”
Now does everyone see why the fans in Philadelphia were going so crazy (like they had never seen it before) when they clinched the division last season?
