Atlanta tops Forbes’ 2014 list of America’s most miserable sports cities

The Atlanta Braves just continue to do what they do. In the thick of the National League playoff race, they’re in position to make a run to the postseason. But few will be picking the Braves to do a lot of damage if they get there. What’s shaping up is a possible repeat of last season — when the Braves took the National League East before bowing out to the Dodgers in the first round — as well as many seasons past.

That kind of outcome would be more tack-on points to a history of sports misery for Atlanta, which ranks first on our list of America’s Most Miserable Sports Cities thanks to just one title (the 1995 Braves) in 162 cumulative sports seasons since the 1960s.

Let’s add to that misery tonight and the rest of this weekend boys!
