Kansas City The 8th Most Miserable Sports City

Well, I guess it's a good thing Kansas City is in the state of misery Missouri. According to the folks at Forbes, Kansas City is the 8th most miserable sports city.

Here's their write-up on the 8th most miserable city:

Teams: Chiefs, Royals, Athletics, Kings, Scouts
Championship round losses: 2
Semifinal round losses: 6
Total seasons/championships: 116/3
Years since last title: 25
Teams lost: Athletics, Kings, Scouts

Baseball's Philadelphia A's used Kansas City as a pit stop (1955-67) on their way to Oakland, while the city's former NBA and NHL clubs now play in Sacramento and New Jersey, respectively. The George Brett-era Royals were bounced out of the postseason six times in six tries between 1976 and 1984 before bringing home their lone title in a seven-game upset of the Cardinals in 1985.

Well, someone needs to tell Chiefs fans they're supposed to be miserable.

Back in February, Forbes did a list of the most miserable cities (not just sports cities) and they blamed it on the Chiefs and Royals.
