If you're lucky enough to be my Facebook friend, you'll know my cover image is Oscar the Grouch proclaiming "shit could be worse." Oscar's right. This could be Cleveland.
Before you label me a Cleveland hater, I need to explain myself. I frequently look at the professional sports landscape in Toronto and shake my head. Excluding the CFL and Rock, and you'll understand why I'm excluding them, we haven't had a championship here since 1993. Hell, the Leafs, Raptors and Jays haven't won a playoff series between them since 2004. We're in quite the drought.
But we're not Cleveland. Cleveland has an MLB, NBA and NFL team, and they used to have an NHL team. Cleveland hasn't had a championship since 1964 when the Browns won the NFL title. That was before there was a Super Bowl. Furthermore, the Indians have the second longest drought in MLB and the Cavs have never won the NBA championship.
But wait, there's more. There was Red Right 88, The Drive, The Fumble, Jordan over Ehlo, the Move, Mesa's Choke in Game 7, LeBron Quitting, The Decision, etc.
So without a doubt, things are bad in Toronto, but shit could be worse.
