Damn, another great one has passed.
I somehow missed this and didn't hear about it until I surfed over to Bubba's Place. Thanks Bubba.
Meadowlark Lemon was a household name back in the 70's when I was still a kid.
I still remember the night my Grandfather drug us down to the High school Gymnasium where I eventually graduated from eleven years later to see the Harlem Globetrotters. I can still see him and Curly teasing the hell out of the ref's.
To this day I can still remember some of the game and the antics Meadowlark pulled.
As a matter of fact, I know I still have a 45 record I bought at that game with their theme song on it.
Sweet Georgia Brown.
Meadowlark and crew literally entertained millions of people all over the world, from little Redneck Rubes such as myself to Popes and Kings.
RIP my good man.
