    HIGHLIGHT:
    There are really two types of misery in sports. There's the well-chronicled misery that comes with futility,...

    Do you agree with the list ? pretty good analysis.
    Another reason to hate? Atlanta.
    I was surprised by Denver being listed as # 7.

    I believe Dan might agree with Buffalo being listed.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    I found you a new motto from a sign hanging on their wall…"Drink coffee: do stupid things faster and with more energy"

    If it wasn't for the damned Cowboys, Dallas-Fort Worth would have made the list. Us poor Rangers fans seemingly never catch a break, let alone any championships or title. And the Mavericks... come on!
