Was Yesterday The Best All Around Day In Philadelphia Sports History?

It certainly is an interesting question and one that while laughable at first, there is a point here. Obviously days where championships won take the cake despite what anyone else does, but was there ever a day where all 4 major Philadelphia teams contributed something exciting and worth talking about and celebrating? The Philadelphia Inquirer has yet to find such a day, although a couple commenters chimed in with some ideas for days tht topped this one. Here is a recap of everything that happened yesterday. First, the Eagles introduced Jaston Peters to the media (I can only find this article; no embedable video).

Raul Ibanez had a 2-run walkoff homerun that won the game for the Phillies in the bottom of the 9th.

The Flyers trounced the Penguins.

And to cap off the exciting afternoon, roughtly 7 hours after the press conference, there was this the end of the Sixers game. And now...Gus Johnson Sixers PbP man, Marc Zumoff.

Wait....did I just hear "Better Days" at the end of that video? Too funny. Well, what are your thoughts, do you think that yesterday was the best all-around day in Philly sports history? There really is no right or wrong answers here.

For more, please read this Inquirer article and the subsequent comments section underneath it.
