Harlem Road Kings will make appearance

The concept of comedy-style basketball is not new, nor are the world famous Harlem Road Kings.

Celebrating 50 years and an expanded 50-game schedule and loads of laughter, this year's follies have the potential to be the best ever.

The team has been featured in such publications as USA Today, XXL Basketball, Sports Spectrum and Basketball Digest. The Road Kings have played games in Europe and the Middle East this season.

The Road Kings are a spin-off from the original Harlem Globetrotters and are the new superstars of comedy basketball, dazzling audiences of all ages with amazing basketball wizardry and tremendous laughter.

The CEO of the Harlem Road Kings, Showboat Robinson, is a former Harlem All-Star. Having been inspired by the great Meadowlark Lemon, Robinson has become the new comedy king of basketball. Fans will be thrilled by the supporting cast of former Globetrotters, college All-Americans and ex-NBA players with rim-rattling slam dunks and concert-like musical scores.

In addition to basketball, the Road Kings encourage an anti-drug philosophy before each game.

The Harlem Road Kings will be playing in Storm Lake on Oct. 23 at 7 p.m. at Buena Vista University's Siebens Center. Their competition for the game will be Brady's Bombers, an area celebrity team featuring Brady from KAYL Radio, Storm Lake police officer Pete Erickson, Buena Vista County Sheriff Chuck Eddy and many area school teachers and coaches.

Advance tickets are on sale at Ressler Drug, Melanders, Sports Rehab, Storm Lake Chamber of Commerce office, or at the door.

The cost of admission is $4 for adults, $3 for college students, $2 for K-12 students and free to pre-school students and under.

All proceeds will be donated to the Storm Lake Drug Abuse Resistance Education (DARE) program.

For more information, call Todd Nicholson at 732-7724.
