Question of the Day

Oct 26, 2016

Yesterday, we asked: The Chicago Cubs are in the World Series for the first time since 1908. But the team wasn’t always called the Cubs. In what year was the name first mentioned and when did it become official?

Congratulations once again to Craig Pittman, who answered 1902 and 1907. Honorable mention goes to David Daniel.

Today's question: This year, the NBA's Cleveland Cavaliers broke one of the longest championship droughts in American sports, giving "Believeland" its first national professional title in a long long time. Now, Cleveland's baseball team playing in the World Series is trying to double-down on breaking the drought, beating the Chicago Cubs last night in Game 1.

The question is... before 2016, when was the last time Cleveland had won a pro sports championship? And which team won it?
