Buffalo has NEVER won a universally recognized championship in any of the four major professional sports leagues. Most sports fans are familiar with three events in Buffalo sports history that went against Buffalo, “Wide Right,” “No Goal,” and “Homerun Throwback.” But these events only highlight a deeply engrained “Buffalo Sports Curse.” Through meticulous research, author Greg D. Tranter has identified that a “Curse” of Buffalo professional sports definitely exists, and it goes all the way back to 1901.
The book delves into the history of each major professional Buffalo sports team, in the four major sports, back to the beginning of the 20 th century. The book outlines 32 specific events in Buffalo sports history that portray the significance and expansiveness of the “Buffalo Sports Curse.” The “Curse” has affected every major league professional team in Buffalo sports history. The book analyzes the close calls, blown calls, injuries, deaths, nefarious back office dealings, maladies and weird happenings that have occurred at just the wrong time to keep Buffalo from winning that elusive championship. A “Curse” is just too pronounced to ignore and now this book brings it to life.
