Harlem Globetrotters: Anyone Up for a Game of Icesketball?

Harlem Globetrotters on Ice

Harlem Globe Trotters on Ice

For hockey fans, the start of the NHL season can’t come soon enough.

But in the meantime, there’s always basketball on ice.

Wait, what?

This may not satisfy hockey fans’ craving for some hard-hitting action on the ice, but the Harlem Globetrotters are here to serve, and it appears like they’ll do just about anything to entertain the masses — or at least the couple of hundred of people who came out to watch them slide on ice in Michigan on Monday.

Using ice cleats and not-so-fashionable blue hockey helmets the Globetrotters dunked and slid across the Michigan ice. They danced, did something sort of resembling dribbling and doused chilly fans with confetti.

It sure beats “Disney On Ice.”

Think we can make a new sport out of this?
