Check out Goldie Hawn showing off her skills to the Harlem Globetrotters back in 1978. The Harlem Globetrotters are an exhibition basketball team that combine their athleticism with elements of theater and comedy in their style of play. Each year the team plays over 450 live events worldwide. To date, they have played more than 26,000 exhibition games in a total of 122 countries and territories over the years. They are noted for their official mascot, an anthropomorphized globe named Globie and the “team's signature song” , which is Brother Bones’ whistled version of "Sweet Georgia Brown". The team is currently owned by Herschend Family Entertainment with executive offices based in suburban Atlanta.
