No city in America with at least three professional men's teams has gone as long as Minneapolis without winning a championship. 

Minneapolis, home to the Vikings, Twins and Timberwolves, hasn't produced a men's title in 27 years, not since the Twins won the World Series in 1991. 

Minneapolis had been tied with Washington, D.C., until the Washington Capitals won the Stanley Cup on Thursday. 

Technically, Minneapolis' streak was always longer – by about three months – since the Twins won the World Series in October 1991 and the Redskins won the Super Bowl, ironically, in Minneapolis, in January 1992.
