The Harlem Globetrotters

Tonight we took the boys to Jacksonville Memorial Stadium to see their FIRST Harlem Globetrotters show. When I was a kid, I saw the Globetrotters, led by the late George “Meadowlark” Lemon and star dribbler Fred “Curly” Neal, play in this very same stadium; it was pretty cool coming back today with my boys.

Today the team is captained by “Big Easy” Lofton and “Scooter” Christensen has taken the reins as the team’s showman dribbler. Although the names have changed, they were still the same fun family entertainment they always were!

We had a blast! After the game, and all the way back to the car, the boys were dribbling their souvenir basketballs and mimicking the moves of Big Easy and the team. I did get them to stand still for one picture. Well, sort of… 😉
