The Buffalo Sports Curse


No Buffalo sports team has ever won a universally recognized championship in a major league. Fans may be familiar with three events that went against Buffalo: “Wide Right,” “No Goal,” and “Home Run Throwback.” But they serve only as highlights for a century-long, deeply engrained “Sports Curse” affecting every professional team in Buffalo sports history. The significance and expansiveness of The Buffalo Sports Curse is showcased by thirty-two historical Buffalo sports events: the close calls, blown calls, injuries, deaths, nefarious back-office dealings, maladies and weird happenings at just the wrong times that all kept the “Curse” alive.​
