We recently had the treat of a night out to watch the Washington Generals take on the Harlem Globetrotters in their 23, 501st game at Collins Arena at Brookdale Community College, in Lincroft. Little did I know what we were in for!
We were brought down court-side and sat behind the Washington Generals bench …. and their coach let us know it! (The Harlem Globetrotters were to our right and they also let the Washington Generals know it!) My husband, son and I, were smack in the middle of this ‘energy’ between both of these teams! After a combination of cheers, boos, mascots, and antics, both teams with basketball players many 7’ plus came onto the court for a couple of hours of intense basketball!
Balls flying, coaches yelling, hoop shots I have never seen before (and I have seen a lot of basketball lately with a 14 year old son) comedic routines, ‘magic shows’….you name it…they had it! There was definitely no time to blink!
I was most impressed by the players taking the time to autograph EVERY basketball (which could be purchased at the event) …and there were a lot which resulted in some very long lines. It was great to talk and meet with each individually at this wonderful family event!
Thank you Scott Johnson, Director of Public Relations for the Harlem Globetrotters and Shannon Holt of Brookdale Community College for giving us this first hand insight into this extraordinary event! But, don’t take my word for it….go see them for yourself!
