Kiss Me, I’m from Harlem
It could take some luck of the Irish for the Globetrotters to survive this basketball game’s new rules. Want to see two-ball basketball, more time in the penalty box, double points, shots 35-feet from the basket or five Globetrotters vs. 6 opponents? You make the rules. Just go to www.harlemglobetrotters.com/rule and vote for your favorite. Good luck, Globetrotters – you’ll need it!
