Saw the Globetrotters a few years back at Basketball Hall of Fame clinic and game in Springfield MA. Still remember in the player intros that each one was a graduate of his college or university, not just an attendee passing through. Impressive individually, and a great reminder for the kids in attendance.

Thank You Gentlemen for the time you gave me with me father. He was a very hard working man who would make a valiant effort to find time to be with the family and one of those times was when the Harlem Globetrotters were on TV on a weekend afternoon. Your names are burned into my memory along with laughing with my father at your antics.

I once worked with Curly on a broadway musical workshop called "Hoopz" directed by Kenny Leon. The project was canceled but I wonder if they are ever going to pick it up?
