Tyler and I had the good fortune to catch the Harlem Globetrotters when they were at the Oakland Coliseum last Friday. Our neighbor works at and ad agency and they had a few extra comp tickets that got us right up close. Our seats were only five rows back and from there, Tyler spotted a classmate who had courtside seats (where this photo was taken).

They were just as good as I remembered them when I went to see them at Madison Square Garden when I was Tyler’s age. Amazing ball tricks and some cool stunts with a trampoline, a three-way lay up which I caught on video.
