Ben Revere Homers! What's Next for Sports Fans?

So Ben Revere last night hit his first home run.  Not of the season. Not of the month.  Of his big league career!  

In honor of Revere's accomplishment, here's a list of four sports achievements we're still waiting for as fans, one for each base Revere touched last night in his first career round-tripper:

1.  The Cubs win the World Series.  Sorry Cubs fans, but I couldn't leave this one out.  I mean, seriously, how could I make a list about "things we're waiting for as sports fans" and not mention a World Series drought of over a century?

2.  A horse takes the triple crown.  The Belmont Stakes happens on June 7, so fingers crossed for California Chrome.

3.  The Maple Leaps bring the Stanley Cup back to Toronto. They haven't won the Cup since the 1966-'67 season, the longest drought among any of the Original Six franchises.

4.  The city of Cleveland wins a championship.  Maybe they can adopt the Denver Broncos?  Or the Oakland A's?  Or the Miami Heat!?  Oh yeah ... never mind that last one.
