Back in December I posted how excited I was to get the chance to see the Harlem Globetrotters in action. As an 80's kid I remember hearing all about them and watching them on TV and thinking they were the coolest. When I told my husband Chris that I had received complimentary tickets to see them he was also excited. He said when he was a kid it was his dream to go see them. He told me they had a knock off version of the Globetrotters in the small town in Oregon he grew up in, and was sad when he didn't have the $2.00 for the tickets to go see them. I thought the story was amusing, but I didn't realize how much finally seeing the Harlem Globetrotters really meant to him, until February when we hit the Acrisure Arena in Palm Springs ready to watch the show.
Here we are ready for the show to begin. The Harlem Globetrotters don't just play basketball they put on a great show with comedy, action and tricks, all the while showing off their amazing athletic abilities.
It was so much fun! The players interacted with the audience who were all enjoying themselves. I saw families with small children, families with older children and even groups of adults, probably fulfilling their childhood dream like my husband. Speaking of Chris, he had a blast and when it was all over he told me I had made one of his boyhood dreams come true.
If you didn't get the chance to see the Harlem Globetrotters in action during this tour be sure to follow them on Instagram and Facebook to stay informed of when they will be touring around the states again. I believe they are currently finishing up their international tour. You can also watch them on their show Harlem Globetrotters Play it Forward streaming on NBC.
