While we might not be the biggest experts on the ol’ sports ball, we do know that this year’s Titans season was a joke. So was last year’s. And the year before that, and the year before that. It’s one of those long-running gags that gets sadder with each retelling. But the season is over, and now we have the chance to see a sports team that’s actually supposed to be funny. The Globetrotters are about to turn Municipal Auditorium into a live-action episode of Scooby-Doo, and we, as usual, are already jonesin’ for some Scooby Snacks. The parquet-court jesters bring their revered jock-ularity and B-ball badassery to town right when we need it — just in time to divert our attention from the fact that our pros are middlin’ at best.
