The Original Harlem Globetrotters “Fans Rule in 2014″ tour is coming to the Baton Rouge River Center on Saturday, Jan. 18, 2014 with shows at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.
I have heard the name of the “Harlem Globetrotters” over the years, but I never seen the show. However, it seems to be a family favorite over the years! The Globetrotters are an exhibition basketball team that combines athleticism and comedy. Their one-of-a-kind family show features amazing ball handling, an assortment of trick shots, high-flying dunks and precise timing – all with an array of comedy guaranteed to entertain the young and the young at heart. After virtually every game, Globetrotter stars remain on the court for autographs and photographs with fans.
I have been checking out some youTube videos – The show looks like so much fun! Great music, great fun, and awesome basketball skills! The stands are full of laughing kids (and adults!). Would be a great Saturday for the whole family. I am giving away a 4-Pack of Tickets on the TangiFamilies.com Facebook Page – be sure to check it out!
Ticket prices start at $16. The River Center is also offering a Globetrotters Family Pack Special! You can grab a Family Pack of 4 tickets and receive a complementary hot dog and soda with each ticket! (Minimum of 4 tickets must be purchased. No password required.)
Groupon Baton Rouge is also offering a deal – $33 for either show on January 18 (Select seats – Up to $56.45 Value). Click Here for the Groupon Deal
This tour takes fan interaction to a new level. Online voting is now open where all fans can choose which new game-changing rules they want to see in their hometown. The 2014 online ballot includes:
- Hot Hand Jersey – Both teams will have a “Hot Hand Jersey” they can pass among each other. The player who is wearing this jersey will receive double points on made baskets.
- Make or Miss – The quarter begins with only two players on the court for each team. When a team scores, a teammate may enter the game. When they miss, the player missing the shot must leave the court, leaving his or her teammates shorthanded.
- Trick Shot Challenge – Via three challenge flags per team, each coach can challenge the other team to make a trick shot. If the team makes the trick shot, they earn five points. If they miss, the other team receives five points.
The roster showcases stars such as Special K Daley, Big Easy Lofton, Flight Time Lang, Hi-Lite Bruton and Dizzy Grant – plus female stars TNT Maddox, T-Time Brawner and Sweet J Ekworomadu*.
