L to R: Slick, John V. & Tiny
The historic Harlem Globetrotters have made their way to Toronto as part of their 2012 World Tour. The Exhibition Basketball Team have long been incorporating humour and antics into their routine, entertaining the World since 1929. For two nights, they will be playing Rogers Centre this weekend. Touring with them for the first-time ever are Tiny - the World's tallest professional Basketball Player at 7'8 and TNT - their first female Player this generation.

I saw 24-year-old Tiny myself firsthand and have never seen anyone quite so tall in my life.  A bit uncomfortable, he bolted as soon as he began to be approached for Photos.  A Crowd of Onlookers watched in awe as he fit himself into a provided Town Car along with Fan-friendly Teammate Slick, as they headed in and out of CBC for a series of interviews today.

It's definitely not too late to get some tickets to see the Harlem Globetrotters in-person this weekend. Click here for details.
