Another day, another list from a big media outlet that likes to rank things, which I then pass along to you, the news consumer. All part of the great circle of life that is the news food chain.

Today it's Forbes, and they've got an opinion on whether we're miserable because our pro sports teams suck. I have some bad news for you. You are very unhappy.



Here's Forbes' assessment of our pain:

Admit it; just reading the words "Kansas City" induces glazed eyes and the sudden need for a nap. The NBA and NHL both skipped town, and the city's sports postseason history is mostly defined by George Brett's Royals falling just short against the Yankees. Kansas City built the Sprint Center, but no one has come.
Damn, Forbes! OK, the NBA and NHL didn't just "skip town," they ... well. Actually, that's a solid point. But the Royals have done lots of great things like ... um ... fine, maybe I should concede that one, too. But at least I can argue that the Sprint Center is ... uh.

Goddammit.

Well played, Forbes.
