That will be the Generals first game in the US since I started this blog. While I appreciate how much both teams do all over the world, it is nice to finally see them "come home" as it were.

If you are in the area and have any little Globetrotter fans, or even better little Washington Generals fans, be sure to take them to meet Buckets. Just remember, be respectful. Fun is the first order of business, and not all fans realise who the REAL stars of the Washington Generals / Harlem Globetrotters games are.
