5492...Happy Birthday Globetrotters

The Harlem Globetrotters first laced them up on this day in 1927.  The locale was Hinckley, Illinois, not far from their base in Chicago.

Len Berman's That's Sports turned me onto today's birthday and also shares this about the Trotters:

The college football showdown is not the only game on today's docket. The Harlem Globetrotters will lace up special cleats and play basketball outdoors near Kalamazoo, Michigan. A couple of years ago they did it in Central Park in New York City. At least somebody is playing on ice this week.
