i don't think you can really distinguish the north side of chicago in that map, subby. i think you're just being a dick.

Huh. That's actually kind of cool.

If someone was to develop an idea based specifically on my interests, I don't think they could come any closer. Sports and maps. Heaven.

Cool tab well earned.

As a Pacers fan, I find the lack of ABA championships on the map disturbing.

\I know, I know

It is 100% interchangeable with a douchemap of the same timeframe

Anaheim Ducks 2007. My question would be why is NHL considered a major sport? They should just replace it on the list with 1A college football as it's far more popular and relevant.

If this doesn't show that professional sports is a total scam, I don't know what else to tell you.

I thought the same thing about Vancouver, then realized they're including the years before Lord Stanley's Cup was awarded solely to the NHL

12 scripts on that page. Didn't know which to allow just to see the god damn map. Oh well.
 
2012-05-04 03:51:22 PM
Fewer cup wins than the Leafs?

/I has a sad now
 
2012-05-04 03:51:40 PM
Interesting (and thankful) that they included the pre-Super Bowl championships. Note to Slate though: the Chicago Staleys became the Bears so that 1921 championship should be for the Bears.

Depressing? Milwaukee gets a NBA dot before Chicago.

Reminds me of how much I wish a former Sonics who is dying of terminal cancer and has nothing to lose takes out Stern and Bennett.

The Stanley Cup is the best championship trophy by a mile though and as such should always be included in any championship discussions.

Well, because these are North American professional sports, and that includes Canada, you twat.

I played the Stanley Cup timeline by itself and thought my Internet crapped out at one point. Nope, just the Cup getting stuck in Montreal for a decade.

You do know that no one lived in the interior of the country until after the 1940s, right? I mean there were like 15 teams in baseball in 1910. 3 of which were in New York. What would disprove the conspiracy? If there had been an Omaha Rumrunners that took the 1911 World Series would you be happier?

It's a conspiracy to concentrate the championships into multiple-team multiple-league long-standing-franchise high population density areas!

I'd be curious to see NYC divided by region (Bronx, Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, East Rutherford, and Nassau County + other boroughs?/parts of NJ?).

/anyways cool map
 
2012-05-04 04:07:45 PM
Baltimore 4 NFL Championships.
Indy 1 NFL Championship

That's the way it is suppose to be.

It would be mostly visits to the Bronx, then occasional ones to Manhattan, Queens, and East Rutherford, one extended stay in Nassau County (not a borough, just to be clear), and one long-ago stop in Brooklyn.

Bronx - 28 (Yankees, 1956 NY Football Giants)
Manhattan - 14 (Baseball Giants 5, football Giants 3, Rangers 4, Knicks 2)
Queens - 3 (Mets '69, '86, Jets '68)
Brooklyn - 1 (Dodgers '55)
Staten Island - garbage from other boros
Nassau Cty - 4 (Islanders)
E. Rutherford - 7 (Giants 4, Devils 3)

Yanks_RSJ: Manhattan - 14 (Baseball Giants 5, football Giants 3, Rangers 4, Knicks 2)


I forgot the baseball Giants had all those championships. So Manhattan's more than occasional.

It might as well be the Bronx though. I've always thought it was kind of weird having two teams playing within walking distance of each other.
 
2012-05-04 04:27:40 PM
did every state with a pro sport win a championship?
beside Connecticut?

Stupid troll is a moron.


I wonder why they put the Devils as East Rutherford rather than just New Jersey, when they didn't put teams like the Islanders as Uniondale. And if you have East Rutherford, why not put the Giants there for those championships?

Thanks for that breakdown, homie.

Would be curious to see a fifth tab on there for all the "other" leagues. WHA, ABA, etc

Tennessee too, though all of their teams are relatively new. And I guess Oklahoma if you're holding the Thunder to an insane standard.
