Past Champions In A Sentence

It’s been said that every American president will be remembered in history with a single sentence. George Washington was the father of his country. Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves and saved the Union. Ronald Reagan won the Cold War. William Henry Harrison died in thirty days. As it is with presidents, so too I’ve made it with the sports champions of the modern era.

The winners of the six major championships—major league baseball, college football, the NFL, college hoops, the NBA and NHL are listed below with their one-sentence legacy. Admittedly, the use of commas stretched each one out a bit, but it’s still the concise summation of a championship year.

The historical focal point of this site is the late 1970s through 2019. The About Us page explains why.
