I just had to share this with you in the hopes that there are some more parents of young children that are looking for something FUN to do as a family in Rockford, Illinois! The Globetrotters just kicked off their new "4 Times the Fun" World Tour and I am totally excited that they are bringing their new 35 foot shot (yes, that's half court!) to Rockford! I have two young boys and they LOVE the Globetrotters! I can't wait to see them sinking the ball effortlessly from half court at the MetroCentre! Anyhow, I found this link that will get you in for cheaper...a $7 discount on tickets. So, if you aren't already doing something on January 9th at 2 pm, follow this link and grab your tickets now! Be sure to use the code MOM to get your discount.
Hope to see you there! GO GLOBETROTTERS!!!

They used to play in my High School every year back in the 60's.
Abe Saperstein went to my H.S.
I was in ROTC and we used to guard the school during any special events.
So i for 4 years i got to hang out in the locker room with them before the game.
Different guys now but it still was cool.
They were very down to earth. No bad attitude just a lot of fun.
Abe died in 69 and i don't think they every played again at my H.S.
Even good people can forget their roots.
BTW that was Kelvyn Park High School
