Rondomness Week 8

I mentioned earlier about the Washington Generals signing of Ryan Gunderson. You can find more info on his signing by CLICKING HERE!

I just discovered that former Washington General Chris Poore has recently been named head coach as Scott High School in Huntsville, TN. CLICK HERE TO READ THE STORY!

Check out this photo of Reese "Goose" Tatum taking on the Washington Generals all the way back in 1953. CLICK HERE!

YouTube user guevoso posted some videos of the game in Montevideo although it was all the half time and pre-game going ons. Indecently, Big G must have had someone else inside the suit for that game. His halftime dance was toned down. He didn't spin around on one hand or bounce on his head. Although he still got knocked down but got up again, because Montevideo ant never gonna keep him down. You can view the clips HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE!

The Piano Guys, whatever that is, outscored the Harlem Globetrotters in the recent "most up and coming YouTube channel". I don't know much about them but I will be blindly loyal and say the Trotters were robbed. But at least it didn't go to another Shane Dawson wannabe. Maybe YouTube is slowly gaining some class.

"Red" Klotz got a mention in an article spotlighting the shortest players in the NBA. Another former General,  Charlie Criss, seems to have just missed the mark. CLICK HERE!

The U.S. Army's home page posted a copy from an article back in December chronicling the Washington Generals and Harlem Globetrotters game out in Germany in support of our troops. CLICK HERE!

Ever want to be an intern with the Harlem Globetrotters corporate office? If so they are accepting applications. CLICK HERE!

A website called "Renew America" wrote an article last year stating Bill O'Riley was President O'Bama's Red Klots, not his formidable foe. Normally any article that potentially controversial I would not touch, beacause I didn't make this page to be controversial. But agree with it or not I thought that was a nice variation on the tired "So-and-so is the Washington Generals of such-and-such". CLICK HERE TO READ IT!

And in closing I found the video below featuring Globetrotter "Buckets" Blake that I am including beacause it is actually really funny. I am guessing they hired this guy to promote the Globetrotters basketball, not an unusual thing for companies to do with YouTube stars these days. Although when I first found the video it only had 21 hits in the first couple weeks. Can't help but think if that's the case they paid for more hits than that.
