Canada hasn't lifted a cup in a quarter century. Ratings won't be a problem north of the border, anyway.

wow i had to go check because i the habs winning doesn't seem that long ago. crazy.

1993, wasn't it?  I was young and skinny back then.

I don't know about the draft thing but Philly has officially had one playoff team within the last three calendar years. That has to be up there with the absolute worst stretches a 4-team city has had.

When the NY Times looked at the saddest sports cities a couple years ago, they found that over the previous 50 years, 19% of Philadelphia sports seasons ended with a top 4 finish but no championship, and that Philly teams made the final 4 more often than any city other than Boston.

So we've transitioned from the blue balls era of Philly sports into the smashed balls era. It's definitely within the realm of possibility for all four teams to miss the playoffs in 2018 also.

the 77 is if you count from the first actual world series (1903). if you count from the start of the franchise (1883) its 97 farging years.

Zero hour, Michael. It's the end of the line. I'm the firstborn. I'm sick of playing second fiddle. I'm always third in line for everything. I'm tired of finishing fourth. Being the fifth wheel. There are six things I'm mad about, and I'm taking over.
