One more item checked off the bucket list.

Back in the day, I was a halfway decent basketball player. Two-year starter in high school, walk-on at college. Nobody was projecting my draft status, but I didn't look out of place on the court with some quality ballplayers. Bottom line is that I really loved playing, and miss it dearly. I hadn't picked up a ball in over a decade...until Wednesday.

You may have heard that the Harlem Globetrotters will be in town on March 25th. As part of that event, one of the players, Thunder Law, was in town on a publicity junket. I suggested we play a game of H-O-R-S-E instead of the standard interview, and he agreed to it! And cameras were rolling! Who won?



I'm just glad I was able to hang in there against such a great player, and it was a whole lot of fun! Thank you to UNC Asheville for the use of Kimmel Arena.

Did you know that Thunder Law is in the Guinness Book of World Records for a shot he made in November for "world's longest basketball shot"?

But wait...there's more! CLICK HERE to sign up to win tickets to see the Globetrotters on March 25th at the US Cellular Center (in which I'll be suiting up for their competition!)
