Do you feel that your sports teams are cursed?

Has your favorite sports teams gone many years without winning a championship? I know my Philadelphia teams have not in many years now and feel that there is some kind of curse over them. They usually have a load of talent but they all seem to find ways to mess up. Do you feel that way about your team? Why do you feel that your team can not win a title?

I am going to continue to show up and cheer for them and hope they win a championship before the day I die. They can drive us crazy but that is what we love about them. I am going to the game on May 11th I believe against the Cubs or it might be the 19th. It will be fun and will be screaming and hollering in joy or booing like everyone else. LOL

I feel the same way about the cubs..They broke open the coffers and traded and obtained new players and they are still losing..They say they traded a really good player way back..I can't remember the name ..will have to look it up and ever since have not had any real luck .. They tend to get rid of good players when they need them most and make crazy decisions..The teams up for sale Ken..you want to buy them??:)+

I have my hands full with the Phillies right now as I wonder sometimes if they are really serious about winning. We have a bunch of talented players but they keep finding ways to lose games they should win. We do not make moves when we need to do and then we make the wrong moves when we do not need to make changes. It has been ages since the Cubs have won a pennant.

I am a Toronto Maple Leafs fan. I became a fan when I was 7 years old. That was 40 years ago this year. The Leafs last won the Stanley Cup...40 years ago. We are cursed! Jinxed! The refs hate us! We get all the bad breaks! We hit the dang post 6 times! Actually the last two years we have been saddled with a bonehead of a gm that couldn't recognize a team's needs if it was on the side of a bus that hit him. We have to get rid of him. The only time it hurt was when I lived in Edmonton dure the peak Great Gretzky years. It was like hell, they were first, we were last, and everyone knew I was a Leaf fan. It was like getting kicked with a steel toed boot every day. But we Leaf fans, we have character! I refuse to die until they win another cup.

That is a very long time since your team last won the Cup. My Flyers have not won the Cup since the mid 70's so we are in a drought as well and feel cursed. Something bad always seems to happen, whether injuries, poor management or coaching or just bad play. My teams have come close to winning some titles but came up short. That is great that you have a great attitude and hope your team wins a Cup, but not before the Flyers. :-)
