You can be the best basketball player since Michael Jordan, scoring tons of points, blocking all kinds of shots on goal, just dominating every aspect of the game, and somehow if you played against the Harlem Globetrotters, you'd still end up feeling like they were toying with you. From the immediately recognizable whistling of “Sweet Georgia Brown” to their catalog of trick plays and show-off comedy, this staple in sports exhibition has spent more than 80 years reminding fans why the world of sports is fun buckets of confetti and hugs for the fans, and not just a place of soulless competition, endorsements and performance-enhancing drugs (we're looking at you baseball!). Catch the game at the Richmond Coliseum on Thursday, March 12, at 7 p.m. Tickets are $20. Call 800-745-3000 or www.ticketmaster.com. — Mike Hilleary
