Become a part of the game with the Harlem Globetrotters

At right: Bull Bullard finds himself above the action during a recent Harlem Globetrotters game. The team will be making a stop in Bridgeport Friday, Feb. 22, at the Webster Bank Arena for a 7 p.m. game.

It’s quite not as fun as coaching your favorite Harlem Globetrotter from the sidelines, but with the team’s “You Write The Rules” tour, which bounces in to Bridgeport Friday, Feb. 22, you at least get a chance to say how the game is played.

At each quarter, a new rule is rolled out, based on the online votes of the fans. And, for one quarter, the audience gets a chance to choose based on its applause. The tour continues the team’s more than 85-year legacy of bringing showmanship, athleticism and community outreach to places around the world.

Will you choose two-ball basketball, double points, the four-point shot, six on five or the penalty box? You can make your picks here, and then go to the game at the Webster Bank Arena at Harbor Yard and see if your vote stuck.

Just don’t be surprised if the Globetrotters manage to pull off a win despite what is thrown at them.
