Sweet Georgia, They Suck

If you can find a South Florida bookie taking bets on this Sunday’s b-ball squabble between the Harlem Globetrotters and the Washington Generals, let it ride on the underdog. After conceding something like 10,000 consecutive games to Harlem, the Generals are due for a win. And with the odds near a bazillion-to-one by now, a fourth-quarter upset could earn you the equivalent of six or more Florida Powerball jackpots.

Then again, a wager for Washington will most likely mean losing your life’s savings, the family mansion, and both legs. So maybe it’s better you play it safe by watching the action at the American Airlines Arena (601 Biscayne Blvd., Miami) from the sidelines. You can laugh. You can eat some popcorn. You can bemoan your lack of guts when the Gens suddenly decide they’re sick of the ’Trotters’ antics and slam them some showboat ass. It all starts at 4 p.m., and tickets cost $13 to $148.
