Last Friday night, I brought my family to the Jack Breslin Student Events Center in East Lansing, MI to see the Harlem Globetrotters take on The Generals. I so was excited to team up with the Globetrotters to promote their world tour. But watching them play at Michigan State University-my alma mater- made the experience even more fun. Our mid-court seats were perfect for experiencing the dunks, antics, and acrobatic maneuvers of this high-energy exhibition team. The pre-game music was energetic and instantly got the crowd on its feet. The Globetrotter's warm-up showcased their iconic finger spins, back flips, and unique "behind the back" passes. And of course, the game itself did not disappoint! Four point shots, dunks, and dramatic squabbles with the refs made for an entertaining game.
Despite a score-board controversy, the Globetrotters pulled off a victory (again!) to keep their winning streak alive. The Generals' defense was oftentimes lacking, and the outcome of the game was definitely predictable. But you never know how the Globetrotters will pull off the win, which makes their games so much fun to watch! Here's a recap of Friday night's game:
The warm-up got the crowd pumped up, and the players prepared to take on The Generals!
The Globetrotter started out strong, with some impressive dunks. Sometimes the players got hung up in the hoop!
The YMCA dance at halftime brought everyone to their feet!
Globie, the Globetrotters' mascot, kept the audience entertained between quarters!
A controversial call made the fourth quarter a little dicey. The scoreboard mysteriously shut off, and it was anyone's game!
But in the end, The Globetrotters pulled off the win! The Globetrotters were gracious enough to sign autographs and take pictures with fans after the game. What a fun night!
