Time to Hate Florida
Yeah, the whole state. I know Ohio does, after Ohio State lost to the Florida Gators twice in two different sports championships in three months. The Florida Gators have won two NCAA basketball tourneys and the BCS since 2006 and will own those two titles for at least another eight months.
But this decade has belonged to the state of Florida. In 2000, Florida State won the BCS. In 2002, it was the Miami Hurricanes. And both of those schools had chances to repeat as champions in the following years and were mercifully beaten, or else it would be our duty to destroy Florida. Of course, it might already be time for that.
But that's not all. In 2003, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers won the Super Bowl, and the Florida Marlins won the World Series. The following year, the Tampa Bay Lightning won the Stanley Cup. Currently, the Miami Heat are the NBA champs, meaning the state of Florida owns men's basketball.
So, let's check. That's 9 championships since 2000. Not even people around Boston can claim that kind of supremacy, and they've won 4 with the Patriots and Red Sox. If you're in the state of Florida, there's a good chance a team you follow has won something in the past 7 years. Yeah, I'm just jealous. No state should have this kind of success. You should feel some pain for awhile before being allowed to enjoy this many championships.
