Sports are cyclical. Teams that are bad usually get good again, and vice versa. But a few teams seem to be good every year, while others seem destined to be bottom feeders forever. Here's the worst of the worst:
5. Detroit Lions: The Lions aren't higher on this list because they actually seem to be heading in the right direction with some young talent. Still, it was only last year they became the first 0-16 team in NFL history. Tough to escape this list with that on your resume.
4.Pittsburgh Pirates: Every day is a fire sale in Pittsburgh. The Pirates haven't made the playoffs since the Ice Age and their go-to move is trading players just as they're on the cusp of being solid major-leaguers.
3. Kansas City Royals: The Pirates haven't made the playoffs since the Ice Age, but dinosaurs roamed the earth the last time the Royals played in the postseason. It's not a good sign when people use you as the argument for a salary cap in baseball. Ex. "We need a cap. Kansas City Royals fans know at the beginning of the season their team has no chance."
2.Oakland Raiders: Well pretty much everything they do is wrong, so it's pretty easy to put them near the top of this list. The only reason they're not ranked a spot higher is...
Dagger (noun) forms - daggered, daggerous, daggerface. 1. A crushing and deflating moment that turns possible victory into certain defeat, mimicking the feeling of a dull blade piercing your gut. ex. That third and 19 the Eagles converted was such a dagger. (verb) forms - to dagger, daggering. 1. The act of metaphorically shoving a blade into someone's gut. ex. I'm going to dagger you with this putt right now. Dinosaur (noun) 1. Any sports analyst who clings to outdated and useless strategies, statistics or ideas. ex. Did you see that dinosaur LaRussa bunt his number three hitter last night?
Legend (noun) forms -legendary, legending, legendarity. 1. Any person who has done something notable, even once. ex. Jim asked that girl out for the 7th time yesterday and she finally said yes. What a legend.
Meaty (adj.) forms - meated, meatness. 1. A positive description of something containing a lot of substance or worth. ex. Tiger Woods has been known to hit some meaty drives.

Watching the Notebook (verb) 1. Spending time with your girlfriend, usually instead of doing something you'd actually like to be doing. ex. Are you going to be a man and hang out for the game tonight? Or are you going to be watching the notebook again?
