TC inception: 1966. "The Tri-City Americans franchise is an original franchise of the WHL. They began in 1966..."
First US Div title: 200708
Simple math for simple minds. 2007 (first accomplishment) minus 1966 (first year in league) equals 41 years between inception and 1st banner that you seem to be so proud of and forget the 41 years of sucking befor that, but that is beside the point.
I am truly sorry that reality doesn't support your fantasy.
