Wednesday night’s Toronto Raptors loss to the Boston Celtics got me thinking about how snake bitten professional sports fans in that city have been.
The Raptors, who at one time seemed unbeatable, have lost seven of nine due to injuries to key personnel. Could this be part of a Toronto-type fall?
In December, Toronto FC lost out on an MLS championship to Seattle in penalty kicks.
The Blue Jays didn’t win a world series in back-to-back playoff appearances in 2015 and 2016.
Then there are the Argos and Leafs.
Unfortunately, a lack of football knowledge in that market leads to the Argos getting little attention, but a 2012 Grey Cup victory seems like so long ago when one looks at the state of the team today.
It’s been 50 years since the Leafs have won a Stanley Cup.
The fans in Canada’s biggest city have suffered some of the biggest heartbreaks when trying to cheer their teams to championships.
