"That's why it looks like something you buy on a stick at halftime."

I love that line.

I also love, "Ma, they were beating a man," and say it to my wife all the time, usually for no reason. That's a line that can only be delivered by Bea Arthur.

The Harlem Globetrotters are probably deserving of their own podcast, if they don't have one already. Their history, dedication, longevity and contribution to society are truly remarkable. It's disappointing that more people don't remark on it. Maybe they've been around for so long (and still tour the country with two full shows), that we've kinda come to take them for granted.

But not all basketball teams could be transformed into superheroes and have it totally make sense.
