This winter has been rough. It’s been freezing outside and just too cold to get out and burn off the usual steam the boys seems to build up indoors. Of course that leads to high tensions and less fun. And we need fun here.
I remember going to the see the Harlem Globetrotters when I was young with my dad. My mom said she remembers going when she was a child as well. The boys have been seeing commercials for the 2015 World Tour recently on TV, and while they don’t really follow basketball just yet, they would stop and stare at the TV when the commercial played.
Like most things, we kept our trip under wraps from the boys. The thrill of the surprise is always exciting for them. It was fun to point out the different sporting complexes in South Philly, and then finally pulling into the Wells Fargo Center. When we entered the building, the boys spied the iconic red, white and blue jersey and basketballs and they were all smiles.
We settled into our seats just as the MC and Globie, the Harlem Globetrotters mascot, began to warm up the crowd. Gotta love that the Harlem Globetrotters not only have female professional basketball players but also their first official MC.
Since the last time I saw the Harlem Globtrotters I was very young, I had no idea about the history of the organization. This is their 89th year amazing fans with their basketball skills and delightful antics. They did not disappoint. Big Easy was a showman, and fabulous comic. The humor was clean, but there were fun undertones for the adults as well.
The boys were on the edge of their seats watching the team. And the smiles and laughter were infectious.
Being in Philly, we of course needed to enjoy a soft pretzel at a game. In the end, the Harlem Globetrotters beat the Washington Generals by 2!
