ESPN Films’ Goose debuts Sunday; Globetrotters visit Bristol campus

Some things in sports boast timeless appeal.

The Harlem Globetrotters date back to the 1920s as an organization. Their unique mixture of basketball and comedy continues to entertain millions.

Sunday at 9:30 p.m. ET on ESPN, the network celebrates one the team’s all-time greats in the new documentary Goose. Reece (Goose) Tatum owns the rare distinction of being a great Globetrotter and a Negro League baseball star.

Check out an excerpt of the film — narrated by actor Anthony Mackie and features comedian Bill Cosby as well as a parade of sports legends including Jerry West, Ernie Banks, Julius Erving and Oscar Robertson — in the video above.

The Globetrotters are playing two dates in Connecticut this week and they made time to visit the ESPN campus in Bristol.

In the video below, Michelle London visited with rookie guard Fatima (TNT) Maddox, the ninth female player in Globetrotters history. The former Temple and University of New Mexico star also was profiled by espnW.
