A round-up of BIG news highlights across the globe, and other BIG finds we want to share!
A FUN FIND!
Matt called me from his guys’ weekend in Springfield, Massachusetts, where he went to watch the college basketball MAAC tournament in mid-March. “I’m at the Basketball Hall of Fame, and a huge basketball is part of the building,” he said. “Google it and see if it’s the world’s largest.”
Well, it isn’t. The world’s largest basketball is actually part of the architecture of the Women’s National Basketball Hall of Fame building in Knoxville, Tennessee. But this one is pretty cool in its largeness, too! It’s a steel, three-level, hemisphere-shaped dome. The 80,000-square foot interior contains a full-sized basketball court, as well as exhibits.
