SATURDAY AT BALDWIN Gym in Quincy, I am a "referee" for the Harlem Wizards basketball game.
I have played in a few of these, but never blown the whistle. Actually, I won't have to use the whistle very much. I've been told to show up a little bit early, and I'm sure I will be "instructed" on what to do, which is watch and be part of the many gags and comedy bits.
It is great fun and the gym is expected to be packed. I'd put on a dunking exhibition but my back is still bad, plus I haven't dunked in four years.
The event is being put on by V.W. Fundraising. It starts at 6 p.m., doors open at 5. Get there early for a good seat.
