Black History: the Harlem GlobeTrotters

Thirty two years ago this month I went to see the Harlem GlobeTrotters at Madison Square Garden for my 11th birthday.  The memory of that day is as fresh in my memory as the day of the game itself.  I'm thankful to have seen most of the originals: Curly Neal, Meadowlark Lemon, Geese Ausbie, Marques Haynes, Louis Dunbar, Twiggy Sanders and all the others.  Those guys and that show was spectacular!

This is my program from that game.  I keep everything.  I started young.

They come to NYC every February. 
For me personally, it's always been a personal indicator Spring Training is right around the corner.

Thank You Harlem GlobeTrotters
for one of my favorite childhood memories.
