One of my FAVORITE childhood memories was my father taking me and my sister to see the Harlem Globetrotters. At the risk of showing my true age, that was when Curly and Meadowlark Lemon were wowing crowds everywhere. OK, fess up, I know I’m not the only one who remembers when the Globetrotters joined the Scooby-doo cartoon. My son loves it. Ahem.
Well, they’re still at it with a whole new crop of superstars. Known as the magicians of basketball, the Harlem Globetrotters are now celebrating their 85th year of an incredibly entertaining brand of basketball. They’ve played more than 25,000 games, entertaining everyone from Presidents to Popes.
As soon as Miles saw the commercial that they were coming to town he started bargaining for tickets. Yup, I’m getting a clean room out of the deal. Not only is my family going but I’ve got four tickets to give to one of you so your family can enjoy the fun, too.
