Wednesday To-Do: Harlem Globetrotters

HARLEM GLOBETROTTERS
7 p.m., Alltel Arena. $19-$94.25.

As they seem to do just about every year, the winningest basketball team ever barnstorms its way into Alltel Arena. Some of the players may've changed since last year, though there's still the requisite number of guys with names like Airport and Tiny. The tricks, in this era of touch-the-top-of-the-backboard dunks, might seem a little passe (I bet they still do granny shots). But once you add the greatest theme song of all time (“Sweet Georgia Brown,” natch) and that iconic red, white and blue ball into the mix, even the hardest-hearted basketball snob can't resist the 'Trotters effortless cool.
