It was quite possibly the single biggest turning point in American history: Philadelphia in that halcyon year of '76.
I'm speaking, of course, of 1976, when the Philadelphia 76ers somehow managed to acquire Julius "Dr. J" Erving from the New York Nets, beginning one of the greatest team dynasties in sports history and giving short, awkward, un-athletic white kids like me a reason to like basketball.
Oh, and, come to think of it, I think some really important world power was founded exactly two-hundred years earlier.
Go back to Day 77.
