HERSHEY -- Flight delayed? Flight canceled? Stuck at an airport in Detroit when you should be in Rochester, New York?
The Harlem Globetrotters have seen and experienced it all.
Known as innovators of the game of basketball for decades, the world-famous Globetrotters are also hall of fame travelers. They must bring their A-game wherever they go -- even if they don't arrive there on time.
"Fans out there don't want to hear about the bad travel days," said Wun "The Shot" Versher, a long-time player with the team. "They could care less about getting stuck in the snow or anything like that -- and we realize that.
"So when we come out here, we want to pretend like the day was smooth and everything was great."
Versher was in Hershey on Wednesday to promote the team's upcoming appearance and had to deal with a threat of severe weather in Dauphin and surrounding counties.
The Globetrotters will be at GIANT Center in Hershey on Friday, March 15, 2013, at 7:00 p.m.
The team will play over 270 games in nearly 240 cities in 45 states and nine Canadian provinces.
For the first time ever, during the Globetrotters' 2013 "You Write the Rules" World Tour, fans can go online and decide the rules for the game -- rules that could affect the final outcome. The Globetrotters have played with two basketballs at once; scored double the points for each basket made; and have even taken the court short-handed.
"We also have six-on-five; which a lot of people like," said Versher, who played at Arizona State. "Of course, the Globetrotters have five and our opponents have six.
"We haven't lost yet; so the outcome is still the same."
The Globetrotters are also playing parts of each game with pink basketballs and selling special pink Globetrotter wristbands to support Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
