    Seattle...losing their NBA team and getting burned by the refs in the SuperBowl. No way Houston can top that...

    rf83 makes a good point. I was thinking a sports city to be unlucky if they haven't had good teams.

    But are you looking for "unlucky city because of bad teams and events" or "unlucky TEAMS" ?

    The former was why I chose Cincy

    If it's the latter, then I won't count Finals appearances and WS appearances as positives necessarily if the team ended up losing in an unlucky way..

    I was sort of doing it for both.

    I mean which would be worse to you as a fan having a team be horrible forever or have a team that continually shows glimpses of winning a championships only to break down or have them stolen from them?

    That is sort of the reason for some of the places, such as San Fran/Oakland area which has had some success only to have it blow up in their faces.

    In hindsight, I realize now that with the dates Denver is probably not the best option.
