Harlem Globetrotters in Louisville January 16

The Washington Generals have not given up! The Harlem Globetrotters will hit the court at the KFC Yum! Center on the evening of Friday, January 16 at 7:30pm to give the Generals yet another chance for a victory. For people of a certain age it is difficult to read this far without hearing Sweet Georgia Brown whistled inside your head. Not long after the whistling settles in, a desire to spin a red, white and blue basketball on your finger comes calling. The memories of Curly Neal and Meadowlark Lemon come rushing back and a the corners of your mouth turn up in a smile.

Entertainment for a Range of Ticket Prices

An opportunity to relive or encounter this fun for the first time is upon us. The ticket prices range from $26 to $113 for a fun filled night at the KFC Yum! Center at One Arena Place in Louisville. The game is more than basketball. It is an athletic exhibition. It is comedy. It is a theater performance.

Globetrotter Memories

The team was immortalized in the 1970's through a Saturday morning cartoon program back when television program choices were limited, and kids in America wanted to watch every Saturday morning. After the show was over, we all wanted to dribble through the house and send the ball behind our backs and into a sibling's hands for the next set of tricks. Of course, every sensible mom in America implemented the no bouncing or throwing balls in the house policy before television was invented. This is the only reason lamps weren't being broken by the tens of thousands every Saturday morning when the children of America re-enacted the Harlem Globetrotters carton immediately after it ended.

Put on your red, white and blue (or green and gold in support of the Washington Generals, if you dare) and bring back some good memories and make some new ones while you are at it!
