The Harlem Globetrotters are Back!

Harlem Globetrotters return to Southern California this month!

Harlem Globetrotters - Moose Weekes dunk

A few years ago I had the chance to see the Harlem Globetrotters in action at the Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles. Their game/show was very entertaining for me and my friend and our young sons. In fact, my son described the players’ antics in great detail for weeks afterwards.

I am looking forward to taking my other son to see them now, because the Harlem Globetrotters are returning to Southern California this month!

  • Anaheim at Honda Center on Saturday, Feb. 13, at 1 p.m., and 7 p.m., and on Sunday, Feb. 14, 2016, at 2 p.m.
  • Mission Viejo at the Saddleback College Gym on Tuesday, Feb. 16, at 7 p.m., and Monday, Feb. 22, at 7 p.m.
  • Santa Barbara at the UCSB Events Center on Wednesday, Feb. 17, at 7pm.
  • Ontario at Citzens Business Bank Arena on Saturday, Feb. 20, 2016, at 2 p.m., and 7 p.m.
  • Los Angeles at the Staples Center on Sunday, Feb. 21, 2016, at 12:30 p.m., and 5:45 p.m.

My younger son actually plays basketball in the Agoura Youth Basketball league, so I know he’ll enjoy it just as much if not more than his brother did!

Are you a fan, or wish you could go see the show? Game? (I never know what to call it!) Tickets are available on the Harlem Globetrotters’ website here, but you can also win a four-pack of vouchers redeemable for tickets to any of the games above right here on Agoura Hills Mom! Just leave a comment on this post between now and 11:59 PM on Monday, February 8. The winner will be chosen at random from qualifying entries and the vouchers will be mailed to you on time to redeem them for even the earliest game.

I received complimentary tickets to a Harlem Globetrotters game. All opinions are my own.

It’s Like the X-Games of Basketball

Last year a couple of Harlem Globetrotters came to my son’s school to give a cool demonstration.  My son talked about it for days.  Imagine how thrilled he is now that the team is back in Los Angeles for a weekend this month!

It’s a performance, a basketball game, and a magic show all in one.  There are three players who are over 7 feet tall, so it’s also a pageant of human extremes.

Plus, this year there is a woman on the team, the ninth in the 86-year history of the Globetrotters.  Fatima “TNT” Maddox is the first lady player since 1993.  Time to show your little girl an example of yet another thing she can be when she grows up.

Lucky for you I have a four-pack of tickets to give away!  The winner will receive a set of four vouchers in the mail and can choose one game from any of those scheduled at The Honday Center (2/18 at 1 PM and 7 PM), Staples Center (2/19 at 12 PM and 5 PM) or Citizens Business Bank Arena (2/20 at 2 PM).  All you have to do is follow this Rafflecopter thingy:
