Have any of your teams ever won it all?

Have any of the teams you root for in sports won the championship?

NFL: My Colts won Super Bowl XLI. I remember I had to work on the night of the AFC Championship Game against the Patriots, and we couldn’t watch it at Blockbuster for some reason. My mother called me every now and then to update me as to what was going on, as we made a miraculous comeback. I made sure to get off well in advance of Indianapolis’s first-ever trip to the Super Bowl.

MLB: My Nationals won the 2019 World Series in a comeback story for the ages after starting the season 19-31. They’re gonna make a movie about it, one of these days.

NBA: My Pacers got to the NBA Finals in 2000 but ran into the juggernaut Los Angeles Lakers, who won their first title with Shaq and Kobe.

College basketball: My Indiana Hoosiers made it to the national championship in 2002. The Butler Bulldogs, another rooting interest of mine, made it to back-to-back national title games.

College football: I don’t expect the Indiana Hoosiers or Kent State Golden Flashes to ever come anywhere close to winning a national championship in college football.

High school basketball: My North Central (Indianapolis, IN) Panthers won the state championship in 1999. I watched it at home in a chair, with my then-girlfriend in my lap.

NFL: The Packers have won two Super Bowls during my conscious knowledge of such things – I watched both of those wins on TV, with a group of friends, and both games were thrilling to experience. The Packers won 11 earlier NFL championships (nine of which occurred before I was born; the other two were before my third birthday).

MLB: The Brewers have only been to one World Series, in 1982, which they lost.

NHL: The Blackhawks won three Stanley Cups in the past twelve seasons.

College Football: the Wisconsin Badgers (my alma mater) have won the Big Ten championship a number of times in the past 30 years, and three Rose Bowls, but they haven’t finished above #4 in the national polls in my lifetime.

College Basketball: the Badgers have made the Final Four three times in the last 20+ years, but haven’t won it all since 1941.

Sure. The Bears won the 1986 Super Bowl.
The Bulls won the NBA championships in 1991, 1992, 1993, 1996, 1997, and 1998.
The Cubs won the World Series in 2016.
The White Sox won the 2005 World Series.
The Black Hawks won the Stanley Cup in 1961, 2010, 2013, and 2015.
(Note that I’m just including the victories during my lifespan.)

@kenobi_65 You live in Chicago but cheer for the Packers? I take it you were born in Wisconsin. Also, you must cheer very quietly.

The Cardinals won the World Series in 1982, 2006, and (the most exciting of the three) 2011.

I was alive for 1964 and 1967 but wasn’t paying attention.

Spurs won 4 NBA titles during the time I was old enough to follow them (2003, 2005, 2007, 2014.)

Texas Longhorns won one title in 2005.

That’s it for me. My Texas Rangers came agonizingly close to the World Series title in 2011 but no cigar. Only one strike away.

I’m from Maine, so yeah, the last 20 years have been great! 6 Pat’s Super Bowls, 4 Sox World Series, and 1 each for the Celtics and Bruins (I don’t really care about those). The '04 World Series was such an amazing thing, I called my dad when the last game was over and it was really special.

I’m 50 years old, so I do remember the dark days of New England fandom. I recall being happy when the Raiders won the SB because Jim Plunkett used to be a Pat.

And my UMaine Bears won the NCAA Hockey tourney a couple of times. The best when they went 42-1-2 for the season, IIRC that was my senior year.

Kansas City Royals won the World Series in 1985 and 2015.

Kansas City Chiefs won the Super Bowl in 1970 and 2020.

Kansas Jayhawks won the NCAA basketball tournament in 1988 and 2008.

Back when I was a Giants fan before their racist owner took over: 2010, 2012, 2014
San Francisco 49ers: Super Bowls XVI, XIX, XXIII, XXIV, XXIX
Not an NBA fan, so I don’t care about the Warriors.

I was actually born in San Jose, CA, but grew up in Green Bay, and moved to Chicago after college. My wife is a long-suffering Bears fan. :wink:

I spent the 60’s and 70’s in the Bay Area and then from the 80’s on, in southern California. So “my teams” have two phases:

Phase 1 - NorCal Native

Oakland A’s: (3) World Series 1972, 1973, 1974
Golden State Warriors: (1) NBA Championship 1975
Oakland Raiders: (2) Super Bowl Championship 1977, 1981
Cal Bears: Nada, Zip, Bupkis, but we did win with The Play (1982)

In my youth, you were either a Raiders fan or a 49ers fan, not both, similarly, you rooted for the A’s or the Giants, not both

Phase 2 - SoCal Sojourn

Lakers: (10) NBA Champions 1982, 1985, 1987, 1988, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2009, 2010, 2020
Dodgers: (2) World Series Champions 1988, 2020
LA Raiders: (1) Superbowl Championship 1984
Spits in the general direction of UCLA and USC

Seahawks won Super Bowl 48 and almost 49 (grumble).

that’s me and mom when she was she was alive except she grew up in southern Michigan

So for the AL she was a tigers fan and a lions fan… and her college teams were Michigan and Michigan state and she looked forward to then when they played each other

Now for pro wrestling on the other hand …

The NFL was kind to me in the past. I was raised a Steelers fan for their first four championships, though I was too young to pay too much attention for the first two. Then my family picked the opportune time to move to the West Coast and I was on the Niners bandwagon for their last three. Don’t hate. Subsequently I wound up in Chicago and things have been…less glorious.

Baseball: Pirates in '79, Cubs in '16. I was a Giants season ticket holder for a time during the Bonds era and have cheered all their recent World Series wins, but they weren’t my primary team by the time they started winning.

Basketball: Sort of the reverse of my NFL luck. I rooted for the Trail Blazers through the 80s and 90s, though I missed their only championship in '79. Then, as the century turned, I started following the Bulls. Life would have been much happier if I’d made that switch a decade earlier. So, no NBA titles yet, and only two conference titles in 40+ years, though that’s my favorite pro league.

College: The Oregon Ducks won the NCAA championships in football and both men’s and women’s basketball in 2022. (wait…they’re not supposed to know about the time machine). Uh, I mean we’ve won a few Rose Bowls in the recent past, and a few others in the very distant past, but no national titles in those sports since the 1939 men’s basketball championship. Then my other team is Northwestern…does women’s lacrosse count?

Soccer: the Chicago Fire have been terrible for the last two decades; I wasn’t around for their brief glory spell in the 90s. And then I support Tottenham…sigh…

Hockey: The Blackhawks have won three championships in the last decade. I don’t actually care, unfortunately.

This does not compute. You can’t be a Sox fan AND a Cubs fan!

I’m with you on the Cubs though, so:
MLB: Braves 1995, Cub 2016, Braves in 2021 (Cubs are primary, Braves secondary)
NHL: New Jersey Devils 2000, 2003 (since dropped, I don’t really watch NHL anymore)
NFL: Tampa Bay Buccaneers 2003, 2021 (my grandfather was a founding season ticket holder)
College: FSU Seminoles
FB: 1993, 1999, 2013
Men’s Basketball: none (although I am convinced we would have won it in 2019/20 before COVID cancelled everything - we were peaking at the perfect moment)
Baseball: none (in spite of all the success under #11, we just never could win the big tamale)
Softball: 2018! (and damn close in 2021 - in 2018 we won 3 straight elimination games to make to the final and beat Washington in 2 straight)

I know, I know. I like to think I have dual fanship. My mother was a big Cubs fan. She knew all the stats and listened to games while she did laundry. When my older brother was 6 or 7, a neighbor took him to a Cubs game. The Cubbies got a drubbing. When he heard there was another ball team in Chicago, he promptly decided to root for the Sox.

I’ve led a double life ever since.

Yankees fan, so yes more than any other team.

Also NY Giants so a surprising number of Superbowls from a team with long periods of ineptitude. We have 4 wins.

Tigers won in '84.
Cubs won in '16.
Michigan football won the Rose Bowl and national championship in '98.
Michigan basketball won in '89.
Pistons won in '89 & '90 & '04.
Red Wings won in '97 & '98 & '02 & '08.

The Lions won a playoff game in '92.

I forgot to mention the NBA in my first post, though I don’t really follow pro basketball anymore.

As a kid and a teenager, I was a Bucks fan; they were pretty good back then, but never made it to the Finals. When they finally won the title this year, I was happy to see it, but I don’t really consider myself a fan of the team anymore.

I was living in the Chicago area during the Bulls’ two three-peats in the '90s; I watched some of the games, in part because it was hard to escape in those days, as they were really the city’s only good sports team, and they really were impressive. But, again, I don’t think I ever considered myself to be a Bulls fan.

Cal has won a bunch of national rugby championships, including a couple when you were in northern CA.

I was a Packers fan from around '94 (9 years old) until last season, during which time they won two Super Bowls and went to a third.
