WATCH: Globetrotter makes free throw from top of Georgia Dome

Moose Weekes said goodbye to the Georgia Dome in a way only a Harlem Globetrotter could.

The Lilburn native and Falcons fan climbed to the highest point of the football stadium — the catwalk circling the base of the dome. Weekes drained a free throw from more than 200 feet above the small basket.

The Globetrotters, based in Peachtree Corners, have four Atlanta-area games coming up.

On March 11, they will have a double-header at Atlanta’s Philips Arena at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.
