Great quiz...I never thought knowing about the championships of the 1951 Rochester Royals and the 1955 Syracuse Nationals. Also, I like how this quiz, which I got 100% in, carefully gives cities of teams that have moved credit to. For instance, Seattle deserves the credit for the 1979 Sonics championship, and not Oklahoma City. So yeah, great quiz...I'd love to see more like this, and to see the championship quizzes be expanded beyond where they currently are.

@Zacblue : does it hurt a bit ? hehe.

Are you crying to discover that your team has moved and was not in LA ? I'm sure you have no clue of the years the moved to LA and not even when they had there titles. You're only proud, that the team you are supporting is not bad ^^

And 2 posts before, Hdny says, it's finally great that someone cares, not to count the titles of franchises, when they weren't in the same city.

You made my day, men !! Hahahahahaha !! Sport's fans are so silly sometimes ^^

As I said quizmaster: I love how you correctly made all those distinctions...Minneapolis shouldn't be shorted those 5 championships. They certainly belong to the Lakers, just not to LA, just like San Francisco only gets 1 of the Giants 6 titles. Again, great job!

And I love the lopsided cities of Montreal and Green Bay...so many titles, and all from just the Canadiens in Montreal, and the Packers in Green Bay. And it is funny to see the New York metro area have SO many baseball championships and a good number of hockey and football, but only 2 in the NBA.

As I said years back, this is an awesome quiz, and I appreciate the time put into it and the care of making sure certain cities with franchises that move - like Minneapolis with the Lakers, NY with the Baseball Giants and Brooklyn Dodgers, and more - are given correct credit. Just a great quiz.

Another. "Another?" I'm from Chicago. I grew up a Cubs fan. One win in 108 years does not constitute toting up "another" win, the way one might add a run on the manual centerfield scoreboard at Wrigley, as if the Sox have been collecting trophies by the armload for the past 11 decades. Come on, man. Just enjoy the one win in your lifetime and savor it.

I scored a proud zero. The question is not properly explained. There's no such thing as "the big four sports" since which are big is purely subjective and your explanation used four unexplained TLAs none of which I knew. For the record my big four sports are athletics, rugby union, rowing and volleyball in that order. Sorry, but this is the worst quiz that I've yet come across on jetpunk.

I too am confused as to why the quiz starts counting Stanley Cups from 1927. Is that when the Stanley Cup became exclusive to the NHL and was no longer competed for by teams of other leagues? Doesn't quite make sense to me.
