Teams you would sacrifice championships for.
I really didn't know how to title this thread because what I am asking is kind of hard to explain. Does anyone have a passion for a professional or college team in which they would trade in future championships of a team that you like if that means the team you are crazy for wins one or two in the process? For example, is there a team that you root for in which you would trade in future Reds championships if that means the team you are fanatic about wins a championship.
For me, I would sacrifice 2 future St. Louis Cardinals World Championships if that means my St. Louis Blues would win Lord Stanley's Cup. The St. Louis Blues are one of the oldest teams in the NHL with its first season being in 1967. The first three years of our existence, we made it to the Stanley Cup Finals with Scotty Bowman coaching the Blues. We didn't win the cup in those three years and after he left, the Blues haven't been back to the Stanley Cup since. That is even on the 1995-96 team that had Wayne Gretzky, Brett Hull, Al McInnis, Chris Pronger, and Grant Fuhr (5 current and future HOFers). This is locally known as the Curse of Scotty Bowman. The Blues set a North American record for the only professional sports team to make it 25 straight years to the playoffs yet not win a title. Not a record to be proud of but it is what it is.
Don't get me wrong, I love my Cardinals but I have a passion for hockey. I would love for the Blues to some day lift and drink from Lord Stanley's Cup. Until then, they will always remain the Cubs of hockey.
I don't know if my question made any sense. Its late.
