When the Harlem Globetrotters hit Nashville on Saturday night (Jan. 27), country artists came out to show their support for the legendary ballers.
Trisha Yearwood, John Rich, who brought his son Cash’s basketball team and Lee Brice along with wife Sarah and children Takoda, Ryder and Trulee, all took in a game for the team’s doubleheader at Bridgestone Arena.
Trisha, who is a big fan of the Globetrotters, spent some quality time, before the game hanging out with Moose Weekes, Hoops Green and Bull Bullard. The group got to talking about their love of the Globetrotters as well as an in-depth conversation about cooking. The basketball players probably learned a lot from Trisha, who hosts her own show “Trisha’s Southern Kitchen,” on the Food Network.
While Trisha may have had the upper hand when it comes to the kitchen, the Globetrotters were able to teach her a thing or two when it comes to basketball. Bull Bullard helped the country singer balance a spinning basketball on her finger, a feat we’ve all tried to unsuccessfully perfect at some point in our lives. Admit it.
“I’m going to be able to do this?” Trisha asks as Bull places the ball on her finger. “I’m not even going to look.” The “Walkaway Joe” singer successfully held the spin for a few seconds before Bull knocked it off. One thing that wasn’t as successful, an attempt at a high five with the 6’8″ Moose Weekes. Maybe a ladder would have been helpful.
