22,000 games in 84 years

I remember the year I first saw the Harlem Globetrotters. They came to my high school with their antics, Curly and Meadowlark Lemon, and Sweet Georgia Brown blaring to fill all space in our high school/community gym. I laughed for two hours. I saw them for the second time yesterday. This time they came with Slingshot, Bingo and Special K and, of course, Sweet Georgia Brown blaring. I laughed for two hours at familiar antics and new routines. Phil, especially, loved it and showed it with his typical enthusiasm. And I could tell Clark liked it. Notice the slightly pleasant look on his face? It was a great family outing.

  1. What a magnificent outing.

    You did what lots of us could have only dreamed.

    (1992: the Barcelona Olympics, is when I became very aware of the Dream Team/Harlem Globetrotters).


    And all so familiar too.
