The Original Harlem Globetrotters are heading back to the Philadelphia region tons of family fun during the “You Write the Rules” World Tour.  Watch as they trot into town and let kids call the shots with shows at the Wells Fargo Center on Friday, March 8, 2013 at 7:00pm and Saturday, March 9, 2013 at 1:00pm.

Celebrating over eight decades of fun, the Globetrotters’ 2013 “You Write the Rules” World Tour is the team’s 87th consecutive season of touring the world.  They have played in 120 countries and territories, on six continents, for more than 136 million fans. For us at Philly Loves Fun, Friday night’s show will be our first time seeing the famous players in person. We can’t wait!!

special_k_daley_and_kid_shot_credit_john_salangsang-harlem_globetrottersKnown as innovators of basketball for decades, the Globetrotters will once again dribble around long-standing norms when they let fans will decide the rules for the game. Possible rule changes could include playing with two basketballs at once or getting double the points for each basket made. Other game time fun includes their four-point shot, which could forever revolutionize the game of basketball. The shot is 35 feet from the basket, nearly 12 feet beyond the NBA’s three-point arc.

Better yet, nobody (NOBODY!!) puts fans first like the Globetrotters. Families, and especially kids, are at the heart of EVERYTHING they do. This year’s roster includes Special K Daley, Big Easy Lofton, Flight Time Lang, and Dizzy Grant, along with the world’s tallest pro basketball player, (7-foot-8 Tiny Sturgess), the shortest Globetrotter ever, (5-foot-2 Too Tall Hall), and female players TNT Maddox, T-Time Brawner, and Mighty Mitchell. Every trick, every joke, every play is driven by a promise by these all-stars to amaze and entertain every family who comes to watch live.  The fun continues after the game when players sign autographs for a minimum of 15 minutes. Usually this is plenty of time for every fan to get at least one player’s autograph. We know we’re definitely sticking around for this!
