The Harlem Globetrotters came here this weekend. We got the last 2 tickets the squadron had to offer and best of all...they were free!
We got there 30 minutes before it opened and the line was already wrapped around the gym. Once they opened the doors and got the non-ticket-holders out of the line, it moved very quickly and we were able to find good enough seats inside.
The warm-ups were my favorite part... the game itself was okay, but I liked the tricks like the ball spinning that went on during warm-ups. The game consisted of lots of dunks by "Hi-Rise" and lots of trash talk by the captain, #34 "Big Easy". We left at the beginning of the 4th quarter because we wanted to get out of the parking lot without much trouble and because we had a pretty good feeling that the Globetrotters would win, even though the coach of the Washington Generals had just tampered with the score, putting them in the lead.
