Wisconsin sports fans will be receiving a double-dose of St. Louis this Sunday, as the Green Bay Packers host the St. Louis Rams and the Milwaukee Brewers host the St. Louis Cardinals.
This is only the seventh time that two of Wisconsin’s major pro sports teams from different leagues will play host to teams from the same city on the same day. Check out the list below.

The state of Wisconsin has pulled off the same day city sweep twice in the list above. Both of those times occurred when one of the games was a playoff matchup, which even though it’s a small sample size, bodes well for Wisconsin sports fans tomorrow.
