Los Angeles is experiencing a so-called “sports equinox,” with five major professional U.S. sports teams playing at home on the same day: hockey, football, soccer, baseball and basketball. And Lance Bass and two other adventurous L.A. boosters planned on attending all five games.
Lance Bass, who shot to fame as a member of the boy band ‘N Sync, said he teamed up with Discover L.A. to catch the L.A. Kings, Rams, Galaxy, Dodgers and Clippers play.
Doane Liu, general manager of L.A.’s tourism department, and Branimir Kvartuc, communications director for Councilman Joe Buscaino, also hatched a plan to do the same, City News Service reported.
The pair said they were going to use ride-hailing services to stop at each match.
Liu and Kvartuc expected to spend about $700 each on tickets.
The three planned to post about their adventures on social media.
Kvartuc said the duo hoped to earn a place in the Guinness Book of World Records — but the feat is really all about civic pride.
If you're a glutton for punishment – or just love spending a ton of time in L.A. traffic and paying hundreds of dollars for parking – you could theoretically see all 5 pro teams play in one day if the Sports Equinox occurs. https://t.co/DDzLxaunE4 pic.twitter.com/kvkWX8qEwF
