    Several years back, my sons did a very unscientific study of professional sports championships.  They examined those cities that have at least three major league teams from the "big four" sports - baseball, football, hockey and basketball.  Of those cities, Philadelphia has had the least number of championships.

     

    Of course, maybe they made it all up but it sure seems to be true.

    Isn't it fascinating where your original post went

     

    Dare you to start another.

    Especially since my OP text was "Ignore this post."  Kinda like children.

  • Ralph Landry1 Level 8 Level 8 (38,670 points)

    Well,you did start it

     

    Can't say you haven't dealt with some of us before, like we could let you get away with saying ignore it, HA!

  • Philly_Phan Level 6 Level 6 (12,445 points)

    I'll do it again when nobody's looking!

    Someone, somewhere will always be looking.

    Dahveed, you're going to make Philly paranoid.

  • Philly_Phan Level 6 Level 6 (12,445 points)

    Just because I'm paranoid doesn't mean that people aren't out to get me!

    Washington has to be pretty close. No titles for the Caps, one NBA title (over 30 years ago), one baseball title (90 years ago? Walter Johnson's finan hurrah), and only 3 for the Skins.

    Hey, we are proud of our teams...the Wiz set a new franchise record for the worst season start, and half the games by more than 18 pts down, 'Skins were playing for pride, or was that first round pick, Naties have them worried no doubt...

    Actually, Philly is significantly better than that, especially if you include the teams that won while in Philly but are no longer in the city.  My kids lied.

    Eagles 3

    Phils 2

    Flyers 2

    76ers 3

    Then add:

    As 5

    Warriors 1

     

    What about Washington teams that won while in Washington but are no longer there?

  • Philly_Phan Level 6 Level 6 (12,445 points)

    Do you remember when the N.O. fans wore bags over their heads?  There was an apocrophal story of a fan that left two season tickets stuck under the windshield wiper of his car with a note "Please take."  When he returned, there were four tickets there.

     

    Of course, we threw snowballs at Santa Claus!  (I was at that game.)

    My dad played on one of the As teams, the year after they won.  The good old days.....  He quit baseball because he was going to make more money selling sparkplugs for them automobile things.

  • Philly_Phan Level 6 Level 6 (12,445 points)

    That's neat.  Do you have any souvenirs?

  • Ralph Landry1 Level 8 Level 8 (38,670 points)

    Why, you need spark plugs
