Randomness Week 18

Bleacher Report put up a list of the 30 most one-sided rivalries in sports. It isn't a huge surprise that the Washington Generals rivalry with the Harlem Globetrotters made the list. What is surprising was that it was only #4. for anyone curious the breakdown for the top 5 is below. To see the whole list CLICK HERE!

  5. Oklahoma vs. Oklahoma State (football)
  4. Harlem Globetrotters vs. Washington Generals (basketball)
  3. Canadiens vs Bruins (Hockey)
  2. Red Sox vs Yankees (Baseball)
  1. Notre Dame vs Navy (Football)

Everyone be on the lookout at their favorite basketball venues. Tickets for the 2012 tour of the Washington Generals and Harlem Globetrotters have begun going on sale. I can't find a resource posting the schedule yet, but several venues have been selling tickets for upcoming games in late December or later. So everyone keep their eyes open.

The Harlem Globetrotters website has posted an article on the Globetrotters recent appearance on Man vs Food. CLICK HERE!

Finally someone on e-bay CLAIMS to be selling an authentic Washington Generals Jersey and Shorts from the 70's. He doesn't mention a players name to it, although it is #3. I don't want to be a naysayer, beacause it could be legit. But it looks more like their uniforms from the late 80's early 90's. If I remember back in the 70's their uniforms were more or less solid yellow. Granted, most people don't know the Washington Generals like they know the NBA. So it could be a genuine uniform. It is hard to believe someone would create a fake Washington Generals uniform during either era, but stranger things have happened. Although, I certainly am not sure enough to recommend anyone spend the $1,790 bucks he wants for it. Especially since I don't think it is as old as he thinks it is, even if it is real.

And finally here is some game footage from a game earlier this tour. It includes some nice ball handling and scores from the Generals, especially Daniel Brady.
