Chicago's 5 Infamous 'One and Done' Teams.
The Flag Of Chicago

Sweet Home Chicago! When most people think of Chicago sports they instantly think of the Cubs, White Sox, Bears, Bulls, etc... 

But there are some hidden dark secrets about sports in Chicago. Over the city's history, there have been five teams who got mainstream exposure but succumbed to ultimate failure after their inaugural seasons. They got mainstream exposure for the following reasons:

1. They had local media coverage.

2. They had national media coverage.

3. Some of these teams found success in just one season.

4. Some of these teams were lucky enough to have star athletes on their rosters.

5. They played at major venues.

Now you would think that having all of these advantages would help guide these teams into long term success. Unfortunately these teams ceased to exist after one lousy season due to reasons such as financial issues, stiff competition, and lack of fan support. 

But they will forever remain in the Windy City's long history of athletic competition. Now, let us take a trip down memory lane.
