Globetrotters


On Sunday, we went to see the Globetrotters with Hughes' cub scout troop.  We got to go behind the scenes and have a private meet-and-greet with some of the players and get autographs.



They all had nicknames that I can't remember but I think the one above is called Cheese.


The boys listening quite nicely.











This is Globee - Globetrotters mascot.


Warming up with some dunks



Practicing their dribbling and fast passes.


At halftime, the boys were able to go on to the court and give the players high-fives on their way to the locker room and on their way back onto the court.





And they won the World Championship.  The whole time during the game Banks was cheering for the Selects.  I kept telling him that this was a pretend game and the Globetrotters were going to win.  He didn't believe me and kept cheering wholeheartedly for every basket the Selects made.  

We had a great time.  They were very entertaining but it could have been about 30 minutes shorter.  

Since then I've witnessed the boys doing some crazy dunks on Collins' basketball goal in the playground.  I think they got inspired.
