Ryan and I went to see the Harlem Globetrotters strut their stuff at the WVU Coliseum in Morgantown on Monday.
I had never seen the Globetrotters in person, but I’ve probably seen them do their routines on TV 50 times. I think what we saw on Monday was probably the same Globetrotter material they’ve performed for the past twenty years (at least).
Of course there are some new wrinkles, like Globie’s music. But I think I’ve seen Globetrotter football many times before; it never gets old.
It was great to hear Ryan laugh at the fun stuff and even get concerned when “Handles” starts playing for the Generals. I think he saved his biggest laugh for “Big G” smacking the ground repeatedly and generally just flipping around in a goofy fashion.
It was just nice to sit and enjoy watching a game where no one was concerned about the final score. The game was more than a game… It was an event.
