Anonymous provides some random memories of Orange County, including a visit by the Harlem Globetrotters to my middle school alma mater, Spurgeon Intermediate...
Things I remember about Orang County:
Meeting Little Oscar and seeing the Weinermobile at a candy store near our house in Murray Manor..
Playing flag football in the morning and getting soaked by the morning dew.
When some of the Harlem Globetrotters stopped at Spurgeon School in Santa Ana and demonstrated their handiwork.
Hot dog days at St. Anne School and playing Santa Claus for the little kids when I was in the 7th grade. Also being taller than th epriest when I was an altar boy there.
Everyone seemed blond and skinny to me--I was not.
Spending time at Corona Del Mar with my family on the beach.
Things were idyllic.
The Harlem Globetrotters visit schools all the time, doing performances and talking to kids about physical fitness and the value of education, and continue to make that a big part of their overall mission.
