Harlem Globetrotter Tay “Firefly” Fisher Spins Balls On “First Look” [VIDEO]
For the first time ever the Harlem Globetrotters are letting fans make the rules for a game.
Siena College alumnus and Kingston, New York native Tay "Firefly" Fisher joined Jim and Kristine in studio to talk about the event. The Harlem Globetrotters will be playing at the Utica Memorial Auditorium on February 6, 2013 beginning at 7:00pm.
During the "You Write the Rules" World Tour fans can even tell the Globetrotters to play with two balls at once, the team making a pink ball available to promote breast cancer awareness. They will also be selling special pink Globetrotter wristbands at the game.
During his appearance on "First Look" Firefly said he encouraged children who play basketball to keep at it, and make certain to maintain a positive personality - especially if they dream of earning a spot on the team. Firefly did not make it the first time he tried out and is living proof of the adage, "If at first you don't succeed try, try again."
He has been bouncing a ball since the age of three and says he is thrilled to be coming back to Utica next month.
