City of Winners
City of Winners update.
Yeah, we're still updating, because everybody refuses to lose. Dating back to Oct. 18, when the Phils lost Game 4 of the World Series and the Flyers lost to Toronto, the professional sports streak goes as follows:
The Flyers, with last night's 3-1 win over Quebec, have not lost in 11 games.
The Sixers, with last night's 136-121 win over Milwaukee, have now won 11 in a row, nine of them after Oct. 18.
The Eagles, with yesterday's 34-21 win over New Orleans, have now won six in a row, four since Oct. 18.
The Fever, with an 8-2 win Saturday over San Francisco, is now 1-0 in the regular season.
The Phils won Games 5 and 6 of the Series, and those two make for a total of 27.
