ESPN will have another mock trial tonight. The topic? Who's more cursed, the Cubs or the Red Sox?

It's simple. They're not "cursed".

As far as the fans of Chicago and Boston go, this is all I need to bring up as to why those fans aren't as "miserable" as the national media would like to think they are.

In the past 25 years (Fall 1979-2004)

BASEBALL (Cubs and White Sox) -- No titles
FOOTBALL (Bears) -- 1985 Super Bowl Champions
BASKETBALL (Bulls) -- 1991, 1992, 1993, 1996, 1997, 1998 NBA Champions
HOCKEY (Blackhawks) -- No titles (lost to Pittsburgh in the 1992 Cup Finals)

BASEBALL (Red Sox) -- No titles (lost to the Mets in the 1986 World Series)
FOOTBALL (Patriots) -- 2001 and 2003 Super Bowl Champions
BASKETBALL (Celtics) -- 1981, 1984, 1986 NBA Champions (16 overall titles)
HOCKEY (Bruins) -- No titles (lost in the Cup Finals 1988 and 1990)

BASEBALL (Mariners) -- No titles
FOOTBALL (Seahawks) -- No titles
BASKETBALL (Supersonics) -- No titles

So there you go.

Obviously, the Mariners won't win it all this year. The Seahawks have a shot to win the Super Bowl. The Sonics, well...

I promise to shut up about this when my team wins a championship. But until then, I have to bring up these facts when I hear about Chicago and Boston being "cursed". They have it easy compared to Seattle.
