In case you think Marlins fans are the worst ever, take a look at Keith Olbermann's blog post this morning on the 1899 Cleveland Spiders. Money quote:
The Spiders, filled with has-beens, reserves, and occasionally local amateurs signed for cameos, lost 20 of their first 23 games, and managed to draw a total of 3,179 fans for their first 16 home games (you not only read that right - less than 200 fans a game - but many contemporary reports suggested that those numbers were padded).Well done, Keith. This serves to reiterate the fact that the city of Cleveland is the most snakebitten sports city in American history (Take that, Philly!).
