2/14/13: Harlem Globetrotters Basketball at the Tsongas Center

We were lucky enough to go to see the Harlem Globetrotters last night at the Tsongas Center at UMass Lowell.  What a fun time!  My son was psyched as he plays Basketball.  Here are the kids with Globie.
I bought the kids a Harlem Globetrotters basketball and I am happy I did since they got to have it autographed after the game. 
Before the game Globie did some entertaining.
Then the Harlem Globetrotters came out.  They started with some tricks to their song "Sweet Georgia Brown".  The kids really enjoyed this.
 Warming up.  Throughout the game there was lots of music, entertainment and fun for the kids.  It kept everyone entertained.
 Then they played a game.  The fans got to pick the rules.  They had many options that you could retweet on Twitter and they would select what they would do for that quarter.  You can see all the rules here.
 Some entertainment during half time.  
 Up on top of the basket!
 During the game
 It was a lot of fun to watch.
 Of course my son's favorite part was after the game getting his basketball signed.
 Here he is with Stretch.  This guy was really tall!  He is 7 feet and 4 inches!
Going around to all the players.  Here he is with Bones.
 Evan slept with the ball last night.
Moose had a big crowd around him but Evan got his autograph. 
 I liked this guy!  His name is Handles.  He kept putting both thumbs up and doing a little dance to people in the crowd.
 Last player!
 Of course Globie has to sign too.
Their trophy! 
Keep an eye out for tickets to a Harlem Globetrotter game this upcoming year.
