Should accept Pennsylvania Statehouse for where Continental Congress met - it wasn't renamed until after independence was declared.

In the end, was just missing one sports team. Already had hockey, football and basketball taken care of, so it's probably baseball... what would Philadelphia's team be? *facepalm

"Its always Sunny..." was based on Paddy's Pub right? That is in Center City, more specifically Old City. Nowhere near South Philly. Trust me I've driven past the place 10000 times
