Happening This Weekend in Philadelphia

Today is going to be quite the day here in Philadelphia, with sporting events of all shapes and sizes taking place. Tomorrow is going to have no shortage, either. Hopefully you're able to take part in at least one of this weekend's many happenings, so here's a rundown of what's going on in our beautiful city:

Broad Street Run- some of the city's finest runners will take to Broad Street for a 10-mile run, sponsored by Blue Cross.
Time: All Day Sunday
Place: Broad Street

Penn Relays- the last day of the most historic track event in our country will take place in our very own University City (and Drexel SMTSU's Kevin Giordano will be there running the show. Say HI if you see him!).
Time: All Day Today
Place: Franklin Field

Phillies vs. Mets- two nationally televised ballgames taking place down at the Bank, headlined by Roy Halladay and Cliff Lee.
Time: 1 PM today, 8 PM Sunday
Place: Citizens Bank Park

Flyers vs. Bruins- a rematch of one of the most memorable playoff series this city will ever remember, taking place just one year later. I don't think the Bruins have forgotten yet either. Game 1 of the series begins this weekend.
Time: 3 PM today
Place: Wells Fargo Center

Union vs. Earthquakes- PPL Park should be rocking as usual, as the Earthquakes head down to take on our boys in Blue and Gold. Come on The U!
Time: 4 PM today
Place: PPL Park
