Harlem Globetrotters deal for Metro riders

Even for those of us who couldn’t care less about basketball, the Harlem Globetrotters are a sweet reminder of sports figures as gentlemen (or women) and times when fans were considered worthy of kindness and respect.

After all these years, the Globetrotters are still like that. They’re also good athletes … should one care about such things. They’ll be at STAPLES Center on Valentine’s Day (2/14) and Metro riders can get a discount. There are two shows that day — afternoon and evening and the discount is available for the 6 p.m. evening show. Metro riders can hop on the Blue Line to STAPLES and get $5 off select seats. Tickets are available at the box office or online at harlemglobetrotters.com, using the promotional code METRO. If you can’t make it to a performance, check out this Globetrotters clip. It will make you smile.
