Philadelphia, December 11-13
The 76ers are not a good team, but there is something fascinating about watching a young, talented squad start to gel. They may still be searching for their first win of the season when they take on the Detroit Pistons on Friday night. The competition gets better Saturday with the latest installment of the Army-Navy football game, a rivalry series that began in 1890. Army will be looking to break Navy’s streak of 14 consecutive wins. Come for the game, revel in the pageantry - and be glad you don’t have to do pushups with each score. Return to Lincoln Financial on Sunday as the Eagles host the Bills, another late-season NFL game with playoff implications. From there, hustle over to Villanova that night to catch one of the best college hoops programs in the country as they take on crosstown rival La Salle.
