    Meadowlark Lemon, famed hoops jester, dies at 83 - CNN.com

    It's funny for me to look back at those years, remembering not just the Globetrotters, but also other sports figures like Cassius Clay, and many in the entertainment world, contending with major issues in their home country.

    And now, I look around and see how some things have changed, and how some have stayed the same.

    The Globetrotters have done some amazing things.

    Thanks for your work, George.

    Saw that - RIP Mr. Lemon. Thank you, and the other 'trotters for the great memories. They were a part of my collective good childhood memories. What a fun time watching their shenanigans. :)

    I was really drunk the other night and read this thread, link included, thinking it was about Lemmy.
    Lemon and Lemmy look really similar when you have to close one eye and hold your phone really close to read.
