I’ve never seen the Harlem Globetrotters live, only on television. My husband was much luckier. My mother-in-law took him to a performance (game?) when he was a child. To this day, he still remembers the excitement of that game.
Even before we heard that Harlem Globetrotters was coming to DC, my husband had recounted his experience to our kids numerous times. They were mesmerized by his retelling. Partly out of disbelief that real people could accomplish the tricks that the basketball players performed. Mostly because the magic of that game has never left my husband.
Thanks to the team at Harlem Globetrotters, we’re taking their kids to their very first HG game! It will be my first time, too. We’re super excited.

About Harlem Globetrotters
For those not familiar with Harlem Globetrotters, the games are a mix of entertainment and skill. For someone who’s not very athletic, I’m blown away by what the players can do. Here’s a video that shows off their talent better than I can describe them.
You know what else is exciting? There are women on the Harlem Globetrotter team!
Not just one, but several. Talk about great role models for our children, both boys and girls.
