Harlem Globetrotters “You Write The Rules Tour”
My family and I went to the Harlem Globetrotters Game when they were here in Texas. The game was scheduled to begin at 7:00pm, but we got there about 6:45 and the pregame had already started. On the floor was “Globbie” the team mascot was on the floor with a group of kids. They then played musical chairs, but with Globbie running off and hiding chairs. It was so much fun! Then after that they did a dance contest. I wish we would have been there sooner because the pre-game show was just as entertaining as the game itself. When the game started they introduced the players and teams along with the announcers and referees. The referees are just as much a part of the show as the basketball players. The main player “Special K” took one of the security wands that they use in an airport to check the referee for any weapons “for our safety”. The wand would be and then started making other noises depending on what area the wand was at. It was so funny my 11 year old had tears!
When the game started the first set of rules that was chosen was “4 point Shot”. If you see the green circles in the photos, that is where the 4 point area was. It was amazing because it is almost 1/2 court where they were shooting from. The game itself was lots of fun because you just never knew what the HG Trotters would do to keep the opposing team from scoring. We saw everything from them pulling a uniform off one player (down to boxers) to climbing on top of the basketball net and kicking the ball as the other team shot! Of course it wouldn’t be a HG Trotters game without them including the audience. They regularly sat down next to people who had court side seats, took a lady’s purse, shared popcorn, and hid by the people. It was great!
After the game they did stay and sign autographs and take pictures on the court. It was great! You really don’t realize how tall they are until you are standing next to them. “Tiny” (who is listed in the roster at 7’8″) didn’t even have to jump to dunk the ball! It was an awesome experience for our whole family! I can’t wait to see them again next year!
