Sports fans most pitied

June 14, 2009

I was watching Sportscenter this morning and another Pirates loss flashed across the screen.  The Pittsburgh Pirates have been one of the most pathetic franchises in sports over the last two decades.  Since Barry Bonds left in the early 90s, they have been a disaster to say the least.

Put the garbage bag over your head if you are…


Is this even a question?- The Detroit Lions have been awful for as long as I can remember.  A good year for them was getting knocked out in a wildcard playoff game back in 1999.  They were 8-8 that year and were very fortunate to sneak into the playoffs.  From 2001-2008 they have compiled a record of 31-97.  The Lions became the first team in NFL history to go 0-16, a feat that was accomplished last year.

NBA- LA Clippers-  Donald Sterling is a billionaire, but unfortunately none of that money goes toward his Clippers.  They play in the same arena as the Lakers, but are on the exact opposite end of the spectrum.  Future looks promising with Eric Gordon and soon to be drafted Blake Griffin.  Up to this point the team has been the laughing stock of the league since their inception in 1984.  In 25 years they have only made the playoffs two times since moving to LA in 1984.

NHL- New York Islanders-  Since their dynasty in the 1980s, Islander fans have been forced to become nostalgic to remember the glory days.  Besides the fact that Nassau Coliseum is a dump, the Islanders have rarely put together a winning team over the least 20 years.

MLB- Pick your poison, the Pittsburgh Pirates since Barry Bonds left or the Kansas City Royals since George Brett retired.
