Let the games begin. Well, not always. Whether it's the Olympics, World Cup, World Series, Stanley Cup or other famous events, the sports world is littered with a long history of competitions that never happened (or were never completed) for one reason or another.
Sometimes, it's due to war, pestilence, tragedy, injury, financial woes, labor strife or political turmoil. But the show has not always gone on as scheduled, much to the chagrin of legions of fans over the decades.
These are the biggest cancellations in the history of sports.
