HEAD SHOT: Mickey Rooney cried foul when he was hit in the head by a basketball — thrown by a Harlem Globetrotter! The veteran star was waiting to board a float at a Hollywood parade and his fellow paraders, the Globetrotters, were tossing a ball around when — POW! Mickey screamed bloody murder — until his wife told him to stop making a big fuss over an accident. (Hey Mick, if you were as tall as a Globetrotter, that ball mighta hit you in the . . . OUCH!)
