Harlem Globetrotters Update
Unfortunately, it appears that the Harlem Globetrotters‘ game and exhibition scheduled for this coming Saturday, April 17, 2010 at General Motors Place is now nothing more than a hoop dream. Due to a scheduling conflict, the event has been canceled and will not be rescheduled during their 2010 North American Tour.

In a press release I received this morning, the Globetrotters confirm that they will instead be playing a matinee game at 3:00 p.m. on April 17th at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Complex in the Fraser Valley. Their regularly scheduled game will go ahead on Sunday, April 18th at 2:00 p.m. as planned. Unfortunately, tickets purchased for the event at GM Place cannot be honoured in Abbotsford. Ticketmaster will be automatically crediting those who purchased tickets online or by phone within five business days; ticket holders who made purchases in person can get a refund at the point of purchase as of this Friday.
I want to thank all my enthusiastic readers and Twitter followers for their entries in the contest to win tickets to the Harlem Globetrotters game and offer my sincerest apologies. The Harlem Globetrotters will eventually make their way to GM Place in Vancouver on their 2011 North American Tour with dates to be announced this Fall. Stay tuned as I hope to provide this exciting contest to you again at that time!
