When you see that jorted fellow at the Molly Pitcher Service Area today be sure to give him an extra dirty look. Today's a big day.

Check out this wild note from the Wall Street Journal about the Sixers playing the Nets, the Phillies taking on the Mets, and the Flyers taking on the Isles all in the same day:

It is the first time since 1890 that there have been three major
professional New York-Philadelphia matchups on the same day, according
to Stats LLC.

But wait, what the hell teams were playing back in 1890?
