Growing up in what I call “secondary suburb”. We were a suburb of a suburb of Cleveland, but not quite rural.
We had public parks within a quarter mile of every neighborhood. Most of the neighborhood parks had the standard playground equipment, some also had enough land for a baseball diamond and basketball court. A few even had enough land for a football field for the local kids to play at.
Those days, we stayed at the park until the street lights came on. At that point, we were jumping on our 10 speeds, and peddling our butts home so we wouldn't get into trouble.
Summers at the park were awesome! You have the kids at the basketball court practicing their skills with dribbling, shooting, or even trying to act just like The Harlem Globetrotters.
I remember watching the kids trying to do the “Around The World”, juggle basketballs, or even try to do little tricks trying to dunk in crazy ways. Some of these kids were pretty darn good too. I was sure that a few of them would actually become an NBA player or even a Harlem Globetrotter.
Growing up, The Harlem Globetrotters came to Cleveland a few times, but my parents never really had the money to take us to many events at any of the arenas, so we watched them when we could on the TV.
Did you know that The Harlem Globetrotters are more than awesome basketball entertainers? They are also the Ambassadors of Goodwill!
