Your worst day as a sports fan?

That day in 1992 when Sid Bream -- one of the slowest men in baseball and a former Pirate -- crossed home plate for Atlanta to send them to the World Series over the Pirates. Came back from 3-1 to tie the series and had the lead in the bottom of the ninth, but things just went to hell...

Not only was it a bad day (was a freshman in college and quarter-beer day at one of the bars that didn't card was the only thing that got me through that night), but it directly led into their long-ass streak of losing seasons where they didn't sniff the playoffs again until 2013.

Can't think of any one single day that sucked that badly.

2015 playoffs when the Bengals finally seemed like they were going to win a playoff game against Pittsburgh then had an absolute meltdown the final couple minutes and lost. 

Burfict, Pacman, Jeremy Hill, all those losers can fuck off.

The 4th and 1 tackle by the freshman  T.J. Turner from Hillsboro Ohio….OSU didn’t recruit him and it came back to haunt them. He starred at MSU and drafted by the Patriots. His rookie year he was on special teams and a backup LB…….about week 8 he gets in big trouble with drugs/alcohol and booted off the team. That same year Brady and Pats won their first SB. He would’ve been a big time player.

Lived in Hillsboro and sold drugs the rest of his life. He passed away from cancer about 5 years ago.

A fan but also a coach….I was the varsity assistant and we had a 2-0 lead in the regional finals with 1 out in the 6th against the top pitcher in the state and our LF hadn’t had a ball hit to her in a game the entire tournament and I yelled out to remind her to be ready, stay ready. Lazy fly ball and she drifted towards it and went off end of her glove. Next girl grounded out easily.

We lose 3-2…..that team rolled in state semis and easily won state championship. Was my daughter’s senior year and I’ll never live it down. It sucked bad and still gets me 10 years later.

the 62-7 dolphins beat down to the jags stands out. Marino's last game and i think they had like 7 turnovers including 1 pick six and 1 fumble. jay fielder came in and looked like Joe Namath against that team in the second half.

41-14 to florida is another that i get serious anxiety thinking about.

When Art Modell stole the Browns from Cleveland and moved them to Baltimore. I've hated Baltimore AND Indianapolis since.

This, or watching the Indians lose all 3 WS they made it to in my lifetime.
