Only a few people really know how I developed a relationship with The Harlem Globetrotters, making their visit each year one of the most anticipated ones for me.
About 5 years ago, my friend, Cubby, from Cubby and Carolina in the Morning was asked to participate and actually PLAY during a Globetrotter game at Madison Square Garden. The bit was that he would get to practice and play with the opposing team.
When he asked me to come to support him, I thought to my myself: "Heck, I am not missing this for the world!"
Little did I know, there was a surprise in store for me too.
That day I met their super-publicist (seriously, Eric is THE BEST). After Cubby introduced us he asked if I had ever sat court-side at Madison Square Garden. (I hadn't, duh.)
Right then he offered to upgrade my seats: Score! Now I would get to see Cubby from real close up and wouldn't miss any of the action.
Spoiler alert: I didn't miss any of the action, in fact I became part of it:
Whoa, flash back to the past. Look at my hair... haha! Anyway - that was day one of a life-long friendship with my Globies! These guys are the greatest.
If you've never been to a game, it's much more than that... The Harlem Globetrotters are pure entertainment and lucky for us they're playing a few area shows!
