Amy S. Rosenberg is a staff writer. Most recent preoccupations: the epic drama of Atlantic City, the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, local beach culture, shoobies, the fragile psyche of the Philadelphia sports fan, and Miss America. She lives at the Jersey Shore but also writes about Philly.
Watch Harlem Globetrotter Handles Franklin spin his way through 11 Jersey shore towns in a "Stronger Than The Storm" spot filmed last week en route to Wildwood. I spotted Ventnor, Margate, Brigantine, Strathmere, Avalon, Atlantic City and, naturally, Wildwood on first viewing. Globetrotter spokesman Eric Nemeth insists the routine was performed in each of the towns he visited on the way to the Wildwoods, where the Globetrotters will perform Aug. 7 to 10th. "No green screens were used - there is still sand in his sneakers," Nemeth said. Nice spot, nice gesture.
