We all love seeing our favorite team or athlete go on a winning streak. Despite knowing it can’t go on forever, we are glad to be part of the ride and hope they’ll continue it for just a little longer. Sports history has seen its fair share of winning streaks, but we decided to share with you the ones we think are the most impressive. So let’s go.
