Family Game Night With the Globetrotters #GlobieFamily

You can find serenity and happiness in having family game night.  It is a fact of modern life that many families spend a great deal of time doing activities with outsiders. Parents work jobs outside the home and children go to school and have extra curricular activities during the week and on weekends. Often in families, the only time families are in the house together is when everyone is asleep. As a result, time that families to get to spend together is precious. At our house we have family game night.

Family game night is usually a Saturday or Sunday evening when we all get together and play games, watch movies and pig out on snacks. This weekend we are going to a Harlem Globetrotters game. It is called the “You Write the Rules” tour. The Harlem Globetrotters have been delighting families across America and around the world for years. The last time I went to a Globetrotters game I was younger than ten year old son is now. I am looking forward to going to the game and sharing the experience with my family.

We started our pre-game fun by going to http://www.harlemglobetrotters.com/rule and picked our choice for a new basketball rule. It was fun. We got to choose between:
  • two ball basketball

I will not tell you how we voted but it was fun to read about the new rules and argue about which one should be a new rule. If your family is anything like mine, everyone will start smiling and laughing at the voting process. . Unlike many professional athletes, the Globetrotters stay on the court after the game to sign autographs and take photographs with the kids. Another great thing I want to tell you is that you can save $7 per ticket by using the promo code”TOGETHER” when you buy your tickets. (Please note, this discount is available on select tickets.)

We are attending the game this Saturday March 9, 2013 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and the entire family is very excited about going to the game and seeing the sportsmanship, artistry and just plain fun the Globetrotters bring. I will write later to let you know how we enjoyed the game.
Disclosure: I was given tickets to attend the game in exchange for writing this post. However, all opinions and statements found here are my personal and honest opinions.
