Like Haley's comet

Today is a very special day, and it has nothing to do with LeBron James' debut with the Los Angeles Lakers. Well, actually, I guess it has a little do with it.

What's a sports equinox you ask? It's extremely rare, as there's only been 17 days in history to record one. 

Here's the definition via Five Thirty Eight

This Thursday will be game 5 of the ALCS. The NHL, NFL, and NBA also all have games scheduled today.

If the World Series goes 5 games, this will also happen on October 28th.

Bonus fact: if the Dodgers make the World Series and it goes at least 5 games, Los Angeles will be come just the 2nd City (Phoenix was the first) to have teams playing in all 4 major sports on the same day (Rams, Clippers, Kings, and Dodgers would all have games - as well as LAFC and LA Galaxy).

And historically, there are only 2 days a year where no big 4 sports games are played.  

So enjoy today, for it only comes around once in a blue moon. If you love sports, cherish 10/18/17 forever.

I know I will.
