When will Denver sports fans be overjoyed by another champion again?

It was a 33-year wait for the people of Naples, Italy, but they finally were rewarded on Thursday with a championship from my beloved soccer club, and the team of my ancestors, Napoli. And then the parties began across the city.

As a Denver sports fan, I wonder if our city will ever again experience something similar to the great emotional release evident as fireworks exploded in the night sky across Naples?

The Avalanche won a championship last year, ending their own 20-year drought, and they had a big crowd show up to see them hoist the Stanley Cup. But it did not have the same generational catharsis.
