Every sports franchise in human history has had it's share of ups and downs. Teams go through lulls in talent, have a few terrible personnel decisons, and just go through periods of poor play.
It's just a fact of sports. But every once in a while, a team is so consistently bad, or suffers from such a stretch of play so terrible, you can't help but feel bad for them.
These are the 25 teams who could really use a hug right now. Some of them have been bad for a historically long amount of time, others have suffered a brutal stretch of bad luck in recent years, while still more may be trying to move past the loss of a legend.
But, in every case, they certainly deserve a hug.
