    Not true.

    1986 - Mets, Giants
    1968 Jets -> 1969 Mets -> 1970 Knicks (wrap-around)
    1956 - Yankees, Giants
    1938 - Yankees, Giants
    1927 - Yankees, Giants, Rangers


    There have also been close calls, such as:

    2000 -- Subway WS (Yankees Win, Mets lose), Giants lose SB XXXV
    1999 -- Yankees win WS, Knicks lose NBA finals
    1994 -- Rangers win Stanley Cup, Knicks lose NBA finals.

    4 in 5 years 96-2000 and 2 more appearances 01 and 03 isn't good enough for you? They went to 6 World Series in 8 years. Most people would take that for life. Even in the 2001-now "drought" they've only missed the post season once. The failure of the Yankees in the last 13 years is post-season flameouts. No wonder people think Yankee fans are spoiled.

What I'm saying is, maybe just superstition, but if the Knicks were to win the NBA championship, then I don't think the Giants could have possibly win the Super Bowl this year, based on previous years stats. That's just my thoughts. I'm glad the #Knicks made it this far, but go #New York Giants.!!!!!

    Nothing wrong with giving away your age (or lack thereof) but in 1969 - 1970 we had the Mets, Jets and Knicks win championships. In 1986-1987 we had the Giants and Mets win championships so I am not spooked at all bu another local team taking a deep run in the playoffs though I root mightily against the J-E-T-S, Jets Jets Jets.
    No one remembers who came in second.
