CLEVELAND – Even though the Cleveland Indians are in a hunt for the playoffs, GQ magazine just named Cleveland as the worst city for sports franchises.
The writer says in part, “To the great people of Cleveland: Look, you gave us Harvey Pekar, and apparently you’ve got a world-class orchestra. But facts are facts, and since your city is, even now, synonymous with Akron-born LeBron James, let’s look at the curse of Cleveland sports from his perspective. Between the Browns, the Indians, and the Cavaliers, Cleveland last celebrated a title four years before LeBron’s mother was born – that’s a combined 152 seasons of futility.”
GQ says Cleveland has endured 152 seasons of futility since the last championship for the Browns in 1964.
Cleveland also has a knack for actually giving away championships.
Some of the most infamous sports flubs in Cleveland include Red-Right 88, the fumble, Jose Mesa giving up runs to lose the World Series in game 7, the Rocky Colavito trade, the shot — when Michael Jordan stopped the Cavaliers and Art Modell moving the Browns to Baltimore.
Detroit and Chicago were Nos 2 and 3.
