I was just wondering if the overall success (or lack thereof) of my favorite teams was around the norm for other fans, or if you guys were a little more lucky than me. I'm 22 years old, and in that time, my favorite sports teams in the NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, NCAA FB and BB have won 3 championships. The last one was Michigan in 1997.
Since I have been a serious fan (teens and above), only one team has made it to a championship. That team was the 76ers in 2001, who promptly were escorted out in a 4-1 "series" with the Lakers.
How many championships do you guys have from your favorite teams? I'm hoping for your sake that you are a little more successful, and I'm guessing with the Wings and Pistons fans that are sure to be here that you will be.
For the record, I have M in '89 (3 years old) and '97, and I have the Braves in '95.
