The Los Angeles Kings ended a 44 season drought by winning the Stanley Cup yesterday. It was the first championship in the history of the franchise, and got me wondering whether there are other teams in North American professional sports that are suffering similar droughts. Indeed, there are.
The poor Cubs are experiencing the worst drought by far, having last won the World Series over a century ago. As bad as that is, at least they can say they have won. Of the teams that haven’t won, the Texas Rangers and Houston Astros have both passed the mid-century mark without a single banner to display. Baseball fans in the great state of Texas are still waiting.
This interactive visualization shows every team and city in the MLB, NBA, NFL and NHL and how many seasons they have been waiting to win. Enjoy:
Thanks for stopping by, as always, and I hope your team isn’t too high on the list!
