The hockey playoffs are currently going on. My favorite hockey team is my home team, the San Jose Sharks. They can play well during the regular season, but during the playoffs, they always lose.
In fact, they are one of twelve teams who have never won the playoffs.
The sad thing is that the Sharks currently have a "making the playoffs" streak. With nine consecutive years and nothing to show for it, they are #1 in the category of "currently making the playoffs and not winning". Washington is #2, with six years, and Vancouver is #3 with five.
Question: Is it better or worse to root for a team who never makes the playoffs, or a team who always makes the playoffs and loses?
