We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Running kind of late this morning. I ran out of gas. I... I had a flat tire. I didn't have enough money for cab fare. My tux didn't come back from the cleaners. An old friend came in from out of town. Someone stole my car. There was an earthquake. A terrible flood. Locusts! IT WASN'T MY FAULT, I SWEAR TO GOD!
Fancy a waterslide that takes you straight from your dance floor to your swimming-pool? What about an unobstructed view of the crystal clear Mediterranean Sea? Believe it or not, this property exists… and it could be yours for a reported $400 million.
This is where Janet Yellen's funny money ends up, one way or the other: Dissipated when there's nothing productive for it to do.
I thought Boston had the sports misery crown until the 2000's, but a little research shows that it's Cleveland, as I wrote in 2011. http://assistantvillageidiot.blogspot.com/2011/02/nod-to-cleveland.html
The Catch in baseball - against Cleveland
The Drive in football - against Cleveland
The Shot in basketball - against Cleveland.
All long before LeBron and Miami.

I thought Boston had the sports misery crown until the 2000's.
With all the Celtics titles up to 1986, I don't think so. About all you can say is that Boston had a dry run from 1987-2000. Didn't have to research Cleveland.
But perhaps you can say that Boston had the self-pity sports misery crown.
And for all the BoSox misery, from 1967 on the Sox had competitive teams, for the most part. Definitely better than the Sox of Carroll Hardy, Pumpsie Green, and Bob Tillman.
