The major late night talk shows are all mainly coming from New York now instead of LA. The Philadelphia Accent is starting the fade away. The New York Times wrote an article about how the accent has become softer. South Philly & DelCo accents have not softened at all. Some people say “Philwy” instead of “Philly.” Casey didn’t realize he had an accent until he traveled somewhere else and they pointed out the way he talked.

She went to Temple and played Temple with them. TNT’s main skill with the Globetrotters is being fast and dribbling. She’s proud to be in an organization where it is so fan friendly and is happy to be back in Philadelphia. TNT played in Sweden for two years and was asked to try-out for the team. In the audition process, it’s a traditional process and towards the end they ask for specific skills. There’s no hazing with the Globetrotters, but it is tough and is a lot of practice to get those skills. There is a series of specific skills they need to learn, but it’s up to the player. Preston and Casey can spin the ball on one finger, but can only hold it for a bit. Outreach into the community is important for the face of Globetrotters.
