How long before it's a streak?

    Not overly serious about this one, but a fun debate.

    Driving back from a game tonight I heard a guy on the radio refer to a team's two-game win streak. That struck me as sounding odd. Back-to-back games yes, a streak not so much.

    I make my rule 5 games for a streak. What about you?

    BTW: Got to cover a junior hockey team this year that set a franchise record 19-game home-ice win STREAK.

    Hope none of those wins came via shootout [/crossthread]

    BTW, I would say 3 wins in a row is a streak. Personal opinion.

    depends on who the team is. If the Charlotte Bobcats win two in a row I'd say that's a pretty impressive streak

    I tend to agree with this.

    This is where I sit. For the right team, a two-game winning streak can be cause for partying in the streets.

    I always defer to Lou Brown, who said three in a row is called a winning streak.

    Two wins in a row is a streak only in a half-sarcastic matter of speaking. Three in a row is a streak for any team.

    though two games or three. . . the Kalamazoo College men's tennis team laughs at such a short streak

    Three is a streak, but that's really not of much significance in any sport with a 30+ game season. Unless the team is really, really bad.

    It's a streak when the last stitch of clothes comes off, and shoes don't count.

    At least three games. Two isn't enough.
