Kaden had a wonderful birthday treat. Thanks to Coyne PR and the Harlem Globetrotters, we were able to bring along a few of his cousins to enjoy an entertaining basketball game at 1st Mariner Arena on December 26, 2009.
We loaded up the car, headed to Baltimore in the rain, and drove without incident. The boys were occupied by their new gaming systems received during Christmas. They were pumped to see the show.
Here is a picture of the crew:
Once we picked our tickets up from Will Call at the 1st Marnier Arena, we headed to the meet-n-greet in a room with other V.I.P. ticket-holders. I must admit, we had a bit of difficulty finding it. Most of the staff was not aware of which direction we should head. We were sent to a few different places before we were finally rescued by a gentleman (whose name I did not get) who escorted us to the correct room. I am assuming he worked for Coyne PR because when I told him I was a blogger, he knew exactly what I was looking for.
The room was filled with tables, and their were guests sitting all around. A curtain separated us from a select few of the Harlem Globetrotter players. We were told to line-up by table, and wait our turn to take a picture with a couple of the players. Here is a shot of the boys and two of the Harlem Globetrotters:
Once inside, the boys were hungry. You can bet it cost a fortune to feed two adults and 4 growing boys. Kaden wasted no time eating his nachos (sorry about the shot...old camera):
The pre-game was entertaining. Lots of dancing and joking around.
Overall, the game was extremely entertaining. Here are a few things I like about the show:
- Lots of crowd participation
- The players are talented
- Never a dull moment
- Great music
- Fun for all ages
- Prizes awarded
- Good show from any seat
If you are looking for something to do, that the entire family will enjoy, go to a Harlem Globetrotter show. Visit their site to see when they will arrive in a city near you.
