If last Sunday felt a little different … well, it should have felt different.

Yankees beat the Brewers in a slugfest in Milwaukee, 12-8Add it up and that was a perfect 4-for-4 for the New York teams, and it quickly became apparentwhen a little bit of digging revealed it had been 13 years since all four teams had won on the same day. I mean … we all know what a dry spell we’ve had in New York the past few years. But 13 years?

In all, since 1962, there have been 166 days when the Mets, Jets, Yankees and Giants played on the same day. If that number seems low to you, it’s understandable. The baseball and football seasons only overlap by a month or so — the most times there ever have been four games on the same day in one season is five. In football, teams sometimes play on Monday, and sometimes play on Thursday. In the early days of the AFL, the Jets played some games on Fridays and some on Saturdays.

Amazingly, it took 22 years before the stars aligned and all four teams won on the same day. They were a collective 0-for-56 until Sept. 29, 1984 . Our Fab Four will not get the chance to go 4-0 in consecutive weeks for just the second time since the Giants don’t play the Cowboys until Monday night.
