    Once. When they were the Jersey Reds.

    Klotz described the fans' reaction: "They looked at us like we killed Santa Claus."

    The Generals should have stuck that bucket of confetti on top of the nearest HG head.

    when i was young you would wait for "Wide World of Sports" to come on and when it was the Globetrotters again you'd say "fuck this, i wanted the demolition derby from East Islip or Evel Kneivel or ski jumping" or some other shit.

    watching the Globetrotters was like sitting with your grandparents watching Ed Sullivan.

    According to Wikipedia, The Generals have beaten the Globetrotters six times. Last win in 1971.
