Still Trotting After All These Years

Share on Nextdoor
Continuing their perpetual barnstorming tour of the world, the Harlem Globetrotters swing by the Scottrade Center (South 14th Street and Clark Avenue) at 7 p.m. this evening for another game of high-energy, high-comedy basketball. The Globetrotters have an 82-year tradition of blending competitive playing with acrobatic flair, which has on occasion resulted in the team being typecast as a mockery of a "real" basketball team. But the Trotters' showmanship is merely an example of how highly skilled the players are. Consider the career record of the "Ambassadors of Goodwill": Including their most recent loss in March 2006, the Globetrotters' winning percentage is still a remarkable 98.5 percent — so the odds of witnessing another Globetrotters triumph tonight are definitely in your favor. And as always, the players sign autographs for fans young and old after the game. Tickets are $15 to $120; for more information call 314-241-1888 or visit
