The Harlem Globetrotters

Last week, Debbie and I got to host an event at the Harlem Globetrotters game in Springfield, Massachusetts. We are members of YPO Connecticut River Valley, a leadership organization, and we lead the chapter’s Youth & Family initiatives.

The Globies are fantastic family entertainment. We could have also attended the show with the Cub Scouts, but through connections we gained access to a pre-game meet and greet with the team. The players were the ultimate professionals. They are talented showmen and show-women.

Our kids and the other 75 kids enjoyed every moment of the evening. The great thing about the Harlem Globetrotters is that the comedy is just as fun for the adults as for the children.

Personally, I love the choreographed athleticism more than anything, but I have to say that the humor was surprisingly enjoyable. I recall seeing the Globetrotters when I was in elementary school nearly 35 years ago.

I won’t wait another 35 years to see them again.

Livingston Family firefighters. 🔥 👩‍🚒 🚒 When @trailrunningmom “smoked” the obstacle course AND added some push-ups for good measure, the Chief pulled out his business card and made a pitch for her to join the squad. I thought I was the competitive one, but she can turn anything into a competition! The kids had a blast too at family day.
From race directing to @thecubscouts directing. Proud day for our son, @trailrunningmom and the rest of #cubscouts Pack 157 Den 5 as they earned their Arrow of Light. Four of her boys are moving to @boyscoutsofamerica #scoutsbsa after five years of fun and learning.
Little D and I ran the @shenipsitstriders #soapstonemountaintrailrace Jerry Stage Sampler 6K with a bunch of other crazies! Tackling the infamous Sandpit with its 40% gradient and slick conditions was great fun. #trailrunning #shenipsitstriders #teamhorstsports 🏃‍♀️⛰
