The Philadelphia 76ers picked a heck of a night to be in Houston to watch a baseball game.
Brett Brown and his boys took in the World Series last night down in Texas in what turned out to be one of the craziest World Series games of all time. Of course, being at such a wild game, their star Joel Embiid had to share the experience with his Twitter followers.
The Sixers are down in Texas after their impressive win on Saturday night in Dallas and are scheduled to take on the Rockets tonight in Houston. Let's just say they were out a little late last night as the wild Game 5 didn't end until this morning, technically.
It's unclear whether the Sixers players were given a choice of either a Dodgers or Astros jersey or were simply given one with their name on the back, but Jojo was rocking a Dodgers jersey and seemingly cheering for the Astros. Not many people can get away with such a move but I'm not one to argue with anything Embiid does.

Oh yeah, Embiid went nuts when the 'Stros finally won the home-run-filled game.
A number of different Sixers took over the team's IG story throughout the game.
