    Catching the Globetrotters on ABC's Wide World of Sports in the 60s was always an event during my childhood. Curly Neal, Geese Ausbie, and Meadowlark formed the backbone of the 60s and early 70s Globetrotters team and were popular enough to have their own Saturday morning cartoon. There will never be another like him. Thanks for the great memories!

    Will miss this dude. Got to see him play in 1966. What a show he put on. Even more than the show was his smile. It made everyone happy.

    Our school took a "field trip" to see them play way back when he was still playing. Loved every minute of it. RIP
