From Bill's Blog:
Our first story tonight is about the Harlem Globetrotters. I love them! In fact, there was a former Channel 2 weatherman named Joe Dombek. He wanted me to ask his niece out. I thought, "There's a great way to lose a friend!" December 5, 1981, a day that live in infamy. My horoscope said, "A great day for romance, but be frugal." The Globetrotters advance man had come through the station and left free tickets to the game. I called the niece up and asked her to the game (we also went to Carburr's and 34 Exchange Street.) Thirty two years later, we have two kids! I have always enjoyed the Globetrotters. I particularly like their classic bits such as the Magic Circle, the weave and chasing the other player with a bucket of water or confetti! I'm such a traditionalist!
