Typically, the term "soprano" refers to female singers but at times the term
"male soprano" has been used by men who sing in the soprano vocal range
using falsetto vocal production instead of the modal voice. ... However,
these men are more commonly referred to as countertenors or sopranists.

CRAP !!
Only one city can boast this accomplishment, and it ain't Philly.
No U.S. (or Canadian) city has ever won all four major sports championships
in the same year. However, before the NBA was formed in 1946, one city DID
win all three major sports (MLB, NFL, NHL) . And yes, the year was 1935.
Detroit hosted the 1935 champions in hockey (Red Wings), baseball (Tigers)
and football (Lions).
