This Week in History

For several years Philips Arena has hosted the iconic Harlem Globetrotters during the second week of March. This year, the team returns to Philips Arena on March 13 as part of its 84th consecutive season of touring the world. Throughout the team’s history, the Globetrotters have entertained more than two million fans in more than 25,000 games and have played on six continents in front of Presidents and Popes!

The Globetrotters’ high-flying show features some of the most extraordinary athletes and entertainers on the planet – including Big Easy Lofton and Flight Time Lang, who stared in the CBS reality hit, The Amazing Race.

Sports Illustrated praised the Harlem Globetrotter’s show as “the sports equivalent of comfort food,” in its March 2009 feature article on the Globetrotters titled, Still Crazy After All These Years.

Tickets are still available for the 1:00pm show on Saturday, March 13, 2010 at Philips Arena. Save $6 on tickets by clicking on the link below and enter the promo code SAVE at checkout.

I still remember going to see the Globetrotters with my Dad and my sister when I was a kid! What a fun childhood memory. I'm glad they're still around for other families to enjoy.
