Harlem Globetrotters

We went to see the Harlem Globetrotters last week. It was the first time for all of us. One of the best games of basketball I have ever seen, and oh, oh, oh so funny!!! We laughed out loud all night! We had great seats--6th row up from the floor.

Globie (spelling?) the mascot. There was also Mini Globie his little brother (which I didn't get a pic of) and then his big brother Big G.

Stretch is sooooo tall! I don't know his exact height, but I'm sure you could find that on the internet if you really wanted to. Here are a few pics of him...
He was holding the ball up way in the air trying to get the little girl to jump up for it!
He just towers over everybody during autograph signing.

Here are some random pics:
The MC--I forgot his name
The opposing team was really good
The refs were awesome and added to the fun
Big Easy--he wore a microphone all night and was the leader of the team and the fun
Each half of the court had two of these 4 point circles. Scooter made 3 of these shots in a row!
This was one of Wichita's news anchors acting as a special ref

Well, did you have any doubt that the Globetrotters would win?

Autograph signing was CRAZY! Roger and Evan got Bingo's and Bull's signatures. Then we got in line to get Big Easy's signature and a pic taken with him, and we were so close to it being our turn, but time elapsed. I took the first pic with Big Easy in the background--it doesn't look like we were all that close to him, but the camera fools you in this pic because we really were. In the next pic, as Big Easy was walking away, people crowded close to him to get one last autograph for him, and you can see Evan in the white hat and black hoodie trying to squeeze close holding up the basketball--he made it and got the autograph!

We had so much fun. If you are a Wichita friend reading this, they usually come to town each February. If there is any way you can save up the money to go see them, I really recommend it. It was one of the funnest nights I have ever had with my family. I would love to go see them again!

  1. The Globetrotters are always entertaining. We used to watch them on TV--back in the day when there were only 2 channels for us to watch so we didn't have much choice. But it put us in the position of watching some great entertainment.
