Filming the Globetrotters for the American Red Cross

Once in a while you get the opportunity to be swept up in a great event. For me, that was a night filming the Harlem Globetrotters for the American Red Cross. The Red Cross and the Globetrotters have long been partners in disaster relief, but this is the first time that the Globetrotters donned special Red Cross jerseys (only the third time in Globetrotter’s history they’ve changed out of their red, white, and blue jerseys.)

The crowd was lively, to say the least, and the fact that the Miles City, Montana, gymnasium was tiny just added to the intimacy of the event. And the fact that it was helping the Red Cross, just made it better.

Here are a few screenshots from the footage. When I see a video using the footage, I’ll post that, too.
