Harlem Globetrotters Playing Three-on-Five

Since forming in the 1920s, the Harlem Globetrotters have continued to entertain millions of parents, children, and general basketball admirers with a trademark blend of athletic precision and razzle-dazzle showmanship. For the team's 2014 tour, a rotating [roster](http://gr.pn/PHdb6w) of Globetrotter favorites?including three female players?takes to the hardwood each game. Spectators might spot veteran guard [TNT](http://gr.pn/rOe0P4) sharing a behind-the-back pass with dunker [Quake](http://gr.pn/QTIGVh), whose high jump once cleared 7 feet, cruelly dashing his dreams of working in a ceiling-fan store. The Globetrotters might also present a study in contrasts with 5-foot-2 [Too Tall](http://gr.pn/PHdmPh) and 7-foot-4 [Stretch](http://gr.pn/1dYrbUt), the team?s tallest member. During each Globetrotters game, youngsters laugh along and witness the jovial jocks performing classic routines of unconventional passing and sudden transmutations of water into confetti. To infuse their visits with an extra shot of unpredictability, the Globetrotters also let fans in each city vote on special rules for every game; past rules have included the use of a four-point shot and the installation of a penalty box. Over the years, similar antics have followed the Globetrotters around the world, including to 122 countries and territories and all six continents on which basketballs grow naturally. The Globetrotters? extensive travels haven?t gone unnoticed: they?re one of the few teams to earn a spot in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame as ambassadors of the sport.

Steps away from the University of Delaware campus, 16 Mile Taphouse sources its frosty, barley-based nectars from the 16 Mile Brewery in Georgetown. Gourmet tavern grub pairs with the popular local brews, such as the Old Court Ale, full of citrusy zing and hints of caramel, or limited-edition batches such as the English Heraldry Series, flavored with notes of foggy weather and a respect for monarchy.

Diners sip wine and ale under lofty ceilings in the tiered dining space, surrounded by rugged brick walls and antique maps. These nostalgic touches pay tribute to the restaurant site's 255-year history; formerly known as The Stone Balloon, this locale was once home to colonial bureaucrats, a world-class 19th-century hotel and restaurant, a dingy 20th-century flophouse, and a 1970s rock ‘n’ roll joint that drew the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Pat Benatar, and Metallica.

Since its origins in the late 19th Century, the University of Delaware athletic department has transcended simply what happens on the field or on the court. Indeed, the Blue Hens have hatched professional football and basketball stars. The school?s football team has won six national titles, including three during the 1970s, and its women?s lacrosse team once captured back-to-back-to-back championships from 1981-83. But when fans look around during Blue Hens events, they notice more than points being scored or referees feeding the little birds inside their whistles. They might spot YoUDee, a mascot whose roots trace back to the Revolutionary War, or the school?s nationally ranked dance team pumping up the crowd. Of course, there?s also the school?s marching band, which at 300 members strong, cranks out stirring renditions of the UD fight song.

Camp Spookynaw is haunted by darkness, and now it's up to you to restore order. Born from a detailed back story, the camp has succumbed to evil: on its property, you'll tiptoe through 10 different buildings writhing with wicked spirits and creatures. Inside the nature center, you'll find ravenous critters clawing at their cages; in the cabins, you'll cross paths with campers casting spells on each other just for fun or because their cellphones don't get very good reception here. High-tech special effects and dedicated actors add extra chills to the experience, which takes about 45 minutes to complete. Away from the camp's havoc, you can seek sanctuary at an onsite refuge featuring refreshments and vendors doling out their goods.

Kim Rice, head riding instructor and trainer at Pebble Creek Farm, brings a background in education and more than 25 years of experience with horses to her lessons. Her 14-acre tract befits an instructor of her prestige, with facilities that include a sand riding ring with lights and easy access to hundreds of miles of trails and fields via Fair Hill Nature Center, located just across the street. Her instruction focuses on English and Western riding styles, which differ in equipment and technique but are both influenced by The Beatles.
