Harlem Vs. US



Ahhh yes! Harlem Lanes was where I decided to hold the Harlem vs. US tournament. The Harlem team consisted of; Team Captain Esso, Donny Goines, Young Nate &  Shiest Bub. The US; Team Captain Karen Civil, Emilio Rojas, GangSTARR Girl,  & Kid Potential…of course “US” came out victorious! When it comes to sports I do NOT loose so please excuse my Keisha from 4H Taft projects behavior, I just take any sport seriously…
