A Snowy Afternoon With The Harlem Globetrotters!Posted: March 18, 2013
We spent Saturday afternoon with Big Easy and the boys! What fun!
Did you know that The Harlem Globetrotters adopted “Sweet Georgia Brown” as their theme song in 1952? The recognizable, whistled tune is played when The Globetrotters warm up in their “magic circle”.

The team’s mascot is Globie! He’s an entertaining “man” with a globe for a head.

“Big Easy” is the ring-leader – the modern-day “Meadowlark Lemon” if you will. He was very good at keeping the audience involved.
He even wanted to share his popcorn with us, but as you can guess, it ended up all over the floor in front of us.
I loved his shoes.
We had court-side seats, which were great! We got up close and personal with “Handles”.

It’s pretty unbelievable how they can entertain and do crazy-amazing basketball tricks – especially this one…..see him? Look ON TOP of the net.
There was a female Globetrotter! What fun! And, she could handle herself just fine. Yo go girl!
The opponent? Well, what can I say – they didn’t stand a chance!
So 2 Coupongy thumbs up for a snowy afternoon with The Harlem Globetrotters! Now, if I could just stop whistling Sweet Georgia Brown.
