Dallas ... The City of Fail

    Dallas is a cursed city in the realm of sports right now.

    The Cowboys still haven't won a playoff game in 11 years.

    The Mavericks have had two epic collapses in a row — blowing a 10-point lead over the Heat and a chance to go up 3-0 in the 2006 Finals, then losing to Golden State in the first round after a 67-win season.

    The Stars have won only two playoff series this decade since their last Stanley Cup run in 2000.

    And the Rangers are the Rangers. Only three ALDS appearances in team history and one — ONE — win. No playoffs since 1999.

    Everything seems to coincide with Mark Cuban's takeover of the Mavs in January 2000.

    What happened immediately afterward? The Mavs suddenly got good again after a decade of suck. But did the Mavs steal everyone else's mojo?

    The Rangers went right back in the crapper and stayed. The Cowboys suffered their Pickle Juice demise in 110-degree Texas Stadium. The Stars overcame it for a while, but it didn't last.

    Is Cuban the city of Dallas' billy goat?

    Something that makes you go "Hmmmmmm."

    Philadelphia laughs at this nonsense.

    Dude, your facelifted prowling-the-Cowboys-sideline-like-a-child-predator motherfucker owner who told Jimmy Johnson that he could win just as much with any of 50?? 500?? coaches... he is where you trace this to.

    Sure, the Cowboys slipped by the Steelers in SB XXX thanks to O'Donnell, and got Jerry a title without Jimmy on the sideline... but his fucking with a dynasty (try telling me the Cowboys couldn't have won four in a row if Owner NipTuck had left Johnson the fuck alone)... that karma is biting him where his wrinkles used to be.

    The Cowboys, after 10 years of Jerry Jones fucking up the draft after deposing JJ, finally have some good players again, but I am so happy that the KING of Loserville was comparing this loss to the January 1995 NFC title loss.

    The Best is yet to come, Owens is in the last year of his contract. He's owed a 3 mil roster bonus and 4 mil in base salary. That's $7 mil to allow Tenacious Offender to play next year, and Terribly Overvalued doesn't play well unless you extend him.

    Cleveland fans lapse into abject hysteria.

    Lion fans are cursed -- but that's the gaping sore in an otherwise decent sports picture in that town.

    I think the original point was that the entire city was "cursed." And last time I checked, it wasn't that long ago that the Pistons ... or Red Wings for that matter ... won.

    Cleveland, though, is most certainly in the discussion.

    Cleveland is way worse off historically as a sports city than Philadelphia.

    That's because the Phillies have won so many World Series titles.
