So globular just means spherical, are globular proteins just red blood cells; then all red blood cells are considered globular proteins.

Are all enzymes in the blood red blood cells? Are all red blood cells enzymes?

What else in the blood is spherical? What is in the blood other than platelets, red blood cells, white blood cells, pathogens, and plasma?

Red blood cells are exactly what they sound like. They are cells. Specifically cells that carry large amounts of hemoglobin (a globular protein) inside them.

Red blood cells are not enzymes, but I'm sure they have some type of enzyme inside them to help with whatever cellular functions are going on.

What is in the blood other than platelets, red blood cells, white blood cells, pathogens, and plasma?

Blood carries all kinds of things in it. Nearly everything that needs to be transported from one place in the body to another is carried by the blood. A non-detailed composition of blood plasma can be found in the first paragraph here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blood_plasma
