The day after Christmas, we headed to the Consol Energy Center to see The Harlem Globetrotters. The closest I had ever gotten to seeing them prior to this was on old Episodes of Scooby Doo. (They either did that a lot or I watched the same episode over and over again.) And I watched Flight Time and Big Easy on Amazing Race. So I’ve seen them solve crimes and traipse all over the world, but never actually seen them play basketball.
We got there just in time for the game to begin. It’s definitely a show for kids, and mine loved it. There was probably a bigger rivalry between the referee and Big Easy than the two teams, and it made the story line all the more fun to follow. The basketball feats were just as awesome as you’d expect them to be. We were especially excited when they introduced the team’s female player. She was great! And it showed all of my kids that they can excel at sports, regardless of gender.
