Best of the Guest Generals: John Meyer

John Meyer is a radio DJ from Connecticut. Originally from New York he now works for KC101.3 in Hamden, Connecticut. On February of 2011 John was asked to suit up and play with the Washington Generals against the Globetrotters.

John didn't have a very outstanding game against the trotter, missing both the 4-point shot and 3-point shot that Handles, yes Handles, gave him.

But unlike a lot of Guest Generals, especially radio ones who don't have the luxury of a news crew to work with, John had a really well edited and shot video. Which included a fun interview with Globetrotter "Hammer" Harrison.

Add to that Handles was doing showman duties for some reason, it looks like he was filling in for Special K, and the video managed to set itself apart form the standard Guest Generals fare.

The Generals lost that night, by a lot. Although I guess two points less than had Meyer not played. Meyer seemed to have fun, as did the crowd though. So as usual for a Generals game against the Globetrotters, everyone won.
