1. Name the two MLB franchises that have never played in a World Series.

MONTREAL EXPOS/WASHINGTON NATIONALS
SEATTLE MARINERS

2. Since the Cubs got to the Series last year which team (not counting the two in the first question) has gone the longest without a WS appearance.

Can we be looking at the we-are-family-era PITTSBURGH PIRATES?

3. Name the four NFL franchises that have never played in the Super Bowl.

DETROIT LIONS
JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS
HOUSTON TEXANS
CLEVELAND BROWNS

4. Name the five NFL teams that have played in the Super Bowl, but their last appearance was before 1990.

I almost said the Eagles - completely forgetting Donovan McNabb's nausea and Professor Andy Reid's lessons in clock management.

JETS
VIKINGS
CHIEFS
BENGALS -- Haven't been there since the Icky Shuffle days?

Can only come up with four.

2. Since the Cubs got to the Series last year which team (not counting the two in the first question) has gone the longest without a WS appearance. - Pittsburgh Pirates (It's a good thing I thought this out, my first instinct was the Brewers)

3. Name the four NFL franchises that have never played in the Super Bowl. - Houston Texans, Jacksonville Jaguars, Cleveland Browns, Detroit Lions (The first three teams have an excuse since the AFC merely rotates the same handful of teams in and out of its SB slot. The Lions just suck...)

4. Name the five NFL teams that have played in the Super Bowl, but their last appearance was before 1990. - NY Jets, Miami Dolphins, Kansas City Chiefs, Cincinnati Bengals, Minnesota Vikings
