Thought I would put up a thread to use to keep going off topic in others.

Hey Pete, I remember back in 2004 when the Yankees choked on a 3-0 lead against the Red Sox in ACLS and still the only time that happened.

Before it happened it was asked who the first team to choke a 3-0 series lead in baseball would be Yankees were expected to be the first to do so because they were in position to make playoffs almost all the time vs others, the Braves were second because they made the playoffs a lot at the time that occured.

A very successful franchise is expected to choke than a team that reaches every once in awhile or very few times

I read that and thought the reasoning was interesting.
The Lakers were picked in the NBA to be first to blow 3-0 because of their playoff frequency at a high level.. 3-0 to 3-3 has happened but 3-0. team won the 4th..

The New England Patriots were the first to choke a 16-0 season without being the champions and they were successful and ranked among the great franchises at thst time. I was hoping Dallas would be first to do that, lol.

Did you know the Redskins were a 1 point favorite against Miami on SB VII at kickoff when they went undefeated? Miami had a notoriously weak schedule that year, beat only two teams with a winning record and none made the playoffs that year...

Good thread Weepy and yes I remember the Yanks blowing that lead, I think the red socks beat the cards for their first world series win in many years. I may have my years mixed up.

That was what happened, before that I believe both franchises been to several WS that went seven games, Red Sox loss in 1986 was a severe heartbreak for them..

And to add insult to injury to New England's 16-0 season, they lost the SB to a wildcard team, 5th best team in the NFC that year...

If recent history is an indicator, SB L will be NYG vs NE, 4 year reunion, and they play in the regular season like the last two.

Every time the Giants coach's job is on the line they win the SB..

Ah ok. Games like that are scheduled in order to advance the obsure school into the national scope, many moves on to D1 in later years as it gets bigger..

I wish them luck in their future endeavors...
