    In Ohio, the Cleveland Browns and Cavaliers are terrible. That Lebron James has probably never been to Akron Zoo :)
    What about in your town?

    I live between Boston and New York. There must be some bad ones in either of those cities.

    Funny, if this were five years ago I would have known right off the top of my head.

    Boston has-
    Baseball- Boston Red Sox (2014 season), 71-91 bad
    Basketball- Boston Celtics, so far 10-15 bad
    Football- New England Patriots, 12-3 good
    Hockey- Boston Bruins, 17-14-3 (OK)
    In New York-
    NY Yankees 84-78, NY Mets 79-83. Both had about a .450-.550 winning %, so they are crappy.
    The NBA Knicks are terrible- 5-25.
    Football-
    New York Giants 6-9 (crap)
    New York Jets 3-12 (I root for the Jets a lot, so this is really bad!)
    Hockey-
    NY Islanders, 23-10 (a .697 win %, not even decent)
    NY Rangers, 17-10-4 (.548 %, bad)
    Boston has 2 bad teams, one good team and one OK team. Most NY teams are terrible besides the Islanders, Rangers and maybe the Yankees.

    The Cincinnati Bengals just now made it to the playoffs for the fourth year in a row but in the past three years they've lost in the first round all thanks to the fact that Andy Dalton can't handle a little pressure. Even before that though, they haven't won a playoff game since 1990. As for the Cincinnati Reds, despite being known for once having the most dominant baseball team in the league (The Big Red Machine 1970-1976) and for having one of the greatest franchises of all time, they too haven't won a World Series or even a playoff game since 1990.
