Washington Generals v. Harlem Globetrotters

April 16 Washington Generals v. Harlem Globetrotters Qwest Center Omaha, 455 N. 10th St. 2 and 7 p.m., $20-$97, qwestcenter.com It’s not easy being a lifelong Washington Generals fan. I’ve never seen them win. All-time against the Globetrotters, the Generals are something like 1-26,752. Yet, they keep showing up. Keep rolling the rock up the hill as the famous Globetrotters spin it, bounce it off each other’s butts, dunk it and keep it away from the mighty green and gold in humiliating but tightly choreographed fashion. Yes, Harlem has the fancy tricks but Washington has resolve. Mark it down. The Generals are going to make history right here in Omaha and pick up their first victory since 1971. Don’t be the one to miss out on history.
