Someone wished for a championship. Someone else said they deserved one more. Thus the argument began for who deserves a championship the most.

Frankly, GT is no place for this kind of talk. :-b

I know, it was a rhetorical question. The White Sox won in 2005 and the Bulls won 6 championships during the 1990's. I wouldn't exactly say Chicago is in a drought. Now if you want to talk specifically about the Cubbies, than I'll have to agree. ;-D

Cubs, 1908 = 98 years
Sox, 2005 = 1 year
Hawks, 1961 = 45 years
Bulls, 1998 = 7 years
Bears, 1985 = 21 years

By my math that makes it 172 combined years of waiting for a championship. That averages out to about 35 years per team. Yes, the Cubbies really skew that number, but they are the Cubs, after all. :-D


Cleveland is still worse on a per team basis:
135 years for 3 teams = 45 yrs/team


I don't think you can penalize Chicago because Cleveland is smart enough not to waste their time on an NHL franchise. :-b

AWWWW... YEAH THEY DID!!!!!!!!!!!!! :-D :-D :-D

There was a time when I used to care about the NBA. Then Michael left the Bulls and it hasn't been the same for me since. I still have my Bulls wall clock in my office at home, though. :-]

Sorry...this is my fault. I still would like the Chargers to win the Superbowl and get a fatty diamond ring. Done.
Doesn't it suck to get beat at Fantasy Football...by a girl?
