  1. Here is something fun to do next weekend! The Harlem Globetrotters are coming to Orlando! Have you ever been to one of their shows? They are amazing, and something everyone should experience at least once! And on the heels of signing one of the most remarkable rookie classes in team history, your readers in the Orlando area will get a chance to see their 2012 World Tour on Sunday, March 4 at 2PM at the UCF Arena.

    Even better, if you go to http://www.ticketmaster.com/event/2200472EF5C96653 to purchase tickets, you can save $7 when using the promotional coupon code MOM. Restrictions apply.

    The wows, the laughs, the magic - these moments become the memories that last a lifetime! Highflying dunks … eye-popping tricks… hilarious jokes … the Globetrotters will have you smiling from start to finish. At the Globetrotters, the game of basketball sets the stage for an experience you will never forget. The Harlem Globetrotters just signed a historic rookie class that includes the top three finishers from the 2011 College Slam Dunk Contest! The Slam Dunk Champion, Jacob “Hops” Tucker, will showcase his ridiculous 50-inch vertical leap. This year’s roster also features the first female in a generation – TNT Maddox – joining Showman Big Easy Lofton. Players and rosters are subject to change.
