My introduction to the Harlem Globetrotters came via a Saturday afternoon sports TV show left playing well after my father had fallen asleep.
My eyes were glued to the screen. They were like magicians with trick shots, dribbling exhibitions and comedy skits involving buckets of either water or confetti — not to mention team members showing ball-handling skills while in a “magic circle,” to the tune of Brother Bones whistling “Sweet Georgia Brown.”
Combining athleticism, theater and comedy is what made them a world-wide success.
If you haven’t had the chance to see the team, make sure you clear your schedule on April 5.
