Sundays this good are usually reserved for Eagles season!

The Phillies get a come-from-behind win on a Raul Ibanez walk-off two-run home run, a day after Brad Lidge blows his first save in a Phillies uniform. Ibanez is rewarded with a shaving cream pie to the face.

Welcome to Philadelphia, Raul!

The Flyers get two goals out of Simon Gagne, clawing their way back into their Eastern Conference playoff matchup with Pittsburgh, winning 6-3 and trimming their series deficit down to 2-1.

The 76ers, once trailing by 18, get a fade-away game winner from Andre Iguodala and shock the Orlando Magic 100-98, taking a 1-0 series lead.

And I didn't see a minute of them.

God bless SportsCenter.

It was a beautiful, 70-degrees here in suburban Washington, D.C., so I was out playing with the kids.

Perhaps having my priorities in order (for a change) was good luck for my hometown Boys.

Does that mean I don't get watch the rest of the playoffs? I sure hope not!

Whatever the reason, it sure is a nice way to start off a week. Hopefully they can continue the trend!

So while we bask in the glow of a 3-for-3 Sunday, let's reminisce about the best days in Philly sports.  What other great sports days come to win, minimum two teams getting big wins on the same day.

Enjoy the week!
