Wondering when was the last time your favorite team in each of the 4 major sports won a title?

I'll Start:

Baseball - Boston Red Sox - 2007
Basketball -Boston Celtics - 2008
Football - Green Bay Packers - 2011 (YES!!!!!)
Hockey - Boston Bruins - 1972

Not bad........need the Bruins to win one soon.

God. I guess I'm a homer, but I've got a few in each sport.

Baseball-Indians-1948
Football-Browns-1964(or no Super Bowls)
Basketball-Cavs-Never

Other fav's
Baseball-Rockies- never
Rays-never
Football-Buccaneers-2002
Basketball-Nuggets-never

Don't care much for hockey, but I guess I would favor the Avs('01) and Lightning('04)

I never really noticed this until now, but it would appear that all my favorite teams are from Cleveland(my hometown), Denver or Tampa. And obviously I'm not a fan of the Broncos because I just can't as a Browns fan. I've always liked these teams, but co-incidentally my wife ended up being from Tampa and her half-sister is from the Denver area.

No Pat's. Really? How'd you end up a Packers fan rather than a Patriots?

Scott T- when the Indiana Pacers won the 1973 ABA Championship, they clinched it against the Nets at the Nassau Coliseum. I went to nearly all the Nets playoff games that year including the one in which the Pacers clinched the title. That's the only championship I've ever witnessed in person.

And my freshman year at Boston University, we were the NCAA hockey champs (1969-70). Steve Sterling was the star of the team. But I never watched them play.

Football - Seattle Seahawks (one Super Bowl appearance)
Baseball - Seattle Mariners (no World Series appearances)
Basketball - Seattle Sonics (1979-80 World Champs, Sold by Starbucks to Oklahoma City)

Over 100 years of organized sport and 1 Championship from a team that no longer exists. Guess I could've mentioned the Seattle Metropolitans 1917 Stanley Cup Champs. Recently saw Seattle was named the "Worst Sports City" due to their teams ineptitude. We would like to see a championship.

I see many guys here only list 3, most excluding Hockey.
I'll limit mine to 3, but must exclude NBA as I couldn't care less about that league...

Here Goes:

NHL= Detroit Red Wings (2007-08) (11 championships in total)
NFL= Miami Dolphins (1973 season, Jan 74 Super Bowl) (22 playoff appearances)

and my real favorite:

MLB=Philadelphia Phillies (2008 Season) (losingest franchise of all-time but enjoying a very nice stretch!)

There's some interesting mixes of teams here.

I'm confused too.

Green Bay Packers - 2011 (I've been a fan since 1995, never followed Football prior)
Chicago Cubs - 1908 (I've been a fan since 1984, thanks much to my mother and grandmother for raising me as a fan of this cursed team.;) )

I'm not a Basketball or Hockey fan, but if I were either, I'd follow the Bulls and Blackhawks. Wisconsin doesn't have a Major League Hockey team that I'm aware of, and the Bucks just seem really boring.

Well Rob, this could be your year in the NCAAs. That bracket should be a wild one.
