11/19/13: Harlem Globetrotters Giveaway at the Tsongas Center

It is so difficult to find the perfect gift for everyone on your list.  Instead of buying another toy what about giving the gift of a fun night out to see the Harlem Globetrotters at the Tsongas Center at UMass Lowell?  I am also giving you a chance to win 4 tickets to the show on February 13th at 7 pm!    

Last year we went and had an awesome time and this year I am adding it to my Holiday Gift Guide.  

I highly suggest buying the kids a Globetrotters basketball.  They get to have it autographed after the game. 
The game is so entertaining.  They start out with some tricks to their song "Sweet Georgia Brown".  
 Up on top of the basket!
Here is more information about this year's game:
 The world famous Harlem Globetrotters will take fan interaction to a new level when the 2014 “Fans Rule” World Tour comes to the Tsongas Center at UMass Lowell on Thursday, Feb. 13, 2014, at 7:00 p.m. Online voting is now open at harlemglobetrotters.com/rule, where all fans can choose which new game-changing rules they want to see in their hometown. The Globetrotters were the first organization in sports and entertainment to let fans vote on rules when the team introduced the concept last year.
 Since the fan response was so overwhelming, the team is doing it again – but with a major twist. The 2014 online ballot includes three never-before-seen revolutionary rules:  Hot Hand Jersey – Both teams will have a “Hot Hand Jersey” they can pass among each other. The player who is wearing this jersey will receive double points on made baskets.  Make or Miss – The quarter begins with only two players on the court for each team. When a team scores, a teammate may enter the game. When they miss, the player missing the shot must leave the court, leaving his or her teammates shorthanded.  

Trick Shot Challenge – Via three challenge flags per team, each coach can challenge the other team to make a trick shot. If the team makes the trick shot, they earn five points. If they miss, the other team receives five points. With a roster showcasing stars such as Special K Daley, Big Easy Lofton, Flight Time Lang, Hi-Lite Bruton and Dizzy Grant – plus female stars TNT Maddox, T-Time Brawner and Sweet J Ekworomadu* – the Globetrotters’ one-of-a-kind family show features mesmerizing ball handling, an assortment of trick shots, high-flying dunks and precise timing – all with an array of comedy guaranteed to entertain the young and the young at heart. After virtually every game, Globetrotter stars remain on the court for autographs and photographs with fans.  Tickets start at $20.00.
Enter below to win 4 tickets to the game and get your holiday shopping done early.
Disclosure:  I received a Four Pack of tickets to a Harlem Globetrotters game through the Harlem Globetrotters in exchange for this promotional post.  No other compensation was received and all opinions are my own.

My boys would love this! I remember my Dad taking my brother (prob 30 years ago) and I was so jealous! My oldest just started basketball, 2nd graders, so cute. He is really into it :)
