Harlem Globetrotter 109ft Shot
Its a low down dirty shame that I've had this sports blog for so many years and never posted anything relating to the Harlem Globetrotters. Oh well, better late than never.
Beginning in 1926 as the Savoy Big Five, the Harlem Globetrotters are still alive and well, bringing fun and laughter to millions around the world. They've earned the title of ambassadors of basketball as they continue to trot the globe demonstrating their unique skills in a very entertaining fashion.
I believe every sports fan can remember their first time seeing the Globetrotters do their thing, whether live or on television, it was amazing stuff. I grew up watching Meadowlark Lemon and Curly Neal. Today's players carry the torch of all Globetrotters past.
There's plenty of information on the internet about the team, past and present. I urge any sports fan, especially basketball fans, to seek out some of the information or just play a video clip and re-live those exciting childhood highlights. Its like going to a circus where the magic of childhood hopes and dreams are awakened. Go ahead and treat yourself.
And in case you've been out of touch, the Globetrotters carry two female players on their roster; TNT Maddox and rookie T-Time Brawner. I'm told the girls got game. They wouldn't be Globetrotters if they didn't.
Sweet Georgia Brown!
