All right. That’s two instances of me referencing that Simpsons episode where Krusty’s all-consuming gambling problem forces him to bet on the Washington Generals. The joke being that putting money on the Generals is foolish, because they’re only slightly more likely to win than the Washington Wizards.
Anyway, Willie Veasley, Avery Jukes and Nick Rodgers, three members of the National Championship finalist Butler Bulldogs signed one-day contracts to play as members of the Generals against the Harlem Globetrotters, who really need to diversify their playing schedule a little. I mean, I signed up for the season ticket package, hoping to pull a couple games against the Lakers, Cavs, Magic, Thunder and Hornets, but instead it’s 82 games against the same team. At least they have the good sense to play that stupid whistling song non-stop during all their games.
