It's a four sport weekend in Philly

Despite living in Japan, I'm always looking for cool roadtrip ideas, even if I can't make them. With the MLB season extending into November, it's the first time in history when regularly scheduled games in all 4 sports are taking place on the same day. In the past, baseball was finished before the NBA started their season. Of course, there's always exhibition games, but those don't count for road trips.

So with the Phillies in the World Series this weekend, I thought it'd be interesting to see if the other Philadelphia teams are at home too. Sure enough, all 3 have home games which leads to a very rare 4-sport weekend!

Friday October 30th Bucks at 76ers
Saturday October 31st Hurricanes at Flyers/Yankees at Phillies
Sunday November 1st Giants at Eagles

Naturally you could stay for games 4 and 5 of the World Series as well. I'm sure there are some fans who are making this trip; it'd be a great experience and one that might not be repeated for a long time.
