GIVEAWAY: Harlem Globetrotters 2010 "Magical Memories" Tour Gift Bag (& Discount Coupon Code)

{This giveaway is now closed. Thanks to those who entered!}

One of the things my husband always talks about is his memories from growing up and going with his family every year to see the Harlem Globetrotters when they came to his town.

I'd like to say that I'm not jealous... but I am. I don't know if it was because the Globetrotters didn't come to our area (which is doubtful, considering they are visiting 200+ cities on this year's tour) or just because my parents weren't into them (in general, they're not sports fans), but to this day I have never seen more of the Harlem Globetrotters than has been shown on television commercials.

And those commercials look like so much fun! The music, the tricks, the dunking of the basketball, the spinning of the ball on their fingertip, the cheering and the laughter... no wonder the Globetrotters have played in more than 25,000 games for everyone from Presidents to Popes.

Everyone but me, though.

No, really. How do they do that?

It's time for my lifelong streak of not seeing the Harlem Globetrotters to end with the 2010 "Magical Memories" National Tour. Beginning on December 26th and running through May 2nd, the team will compete against their rivals, the Washington Generals, in 216 cities around the country and I am proud to say that my family is going to be there to cheer them on.

How excited is Big Sister E (okay, ME TOO) going to be when we get to go see the Globetrotters in person when they come visit our city? VERY. That's how excited. VERY, VERY EXCITED. If she gets to high-five a player that is more than twice her height? Even more so. And if I make a fool over myself trying to get close to The Amazing Race stars, Flight Time and Big Easy? Well, so be it.

It wasn't in the cards for them to win The Amazing Race, but I still love 'em anyway

Along with being amazingly entertaining, the Harlem Globetrotters have a great website, too. Be sure to check out the history of the Globetrotters, player bios and photos, information on joining The Original Harlem Globetrotters Fan Club and more. For the big fans in your life, don't miss the merchandise for sale or that kids can email fan letters to the players - and have a Globetrotter personally respond!

Wondering if the Harlem Globetrotters are coming to a venue near you so that you can share the in the magic and create some amazing memories for your family? Check out their schedule now as tickets are already for sale in many areas! Looking for a great discount? Purchase tickets to the "Magical Memories" Tour using the promo code HGMOM at checkout and this coupon will give you $7 off per ticket*! If your family of four is going to the show, this code will almost get you the fourth ticket free!

If a great deal isn't enough to get you excited about going to see the Harlem Globetrotters, then how about...

One lucky person will win a Harlem Globetrotters gift bag! ARV $50!
(This includes a Harlem Globetrotter mini-basketball, authentic Globetrotter wristbands, an autographed Harlem Globetrotter team photo and a 2010 game program)
