Pony joins Globetrotter to show off his HORSE skills

If you were a Harlem Globetrotter, would you rather be in North Korea with Dennis Rodman or in Tampa with Amos the basketball-shooting horse?

Wait, don't answer that. But do look at this adorable video of the little pony playing its own version of the game of HORSE.

Amos was a surprise guest with Globetrotters star Special K Daley at an antibullying assembly Wednesday morning at Bayshore Christian School, 3909 S MacDill Ave. in Tampa.

Special K was presenting the team's "ABCs of Bullying Prevention" to nearly 200 Tampa kids. The initials stand for action, bravery and compassion to combat bullying.

Special K, a native of Panama, is in Tampa in advance of the Globetrotters game at the USF Sun Dome on Saturday at 7 p.m. (Tickets are available at harlemglobetrotters.com.)

According to a news release about the assemble, the Globetrotters will present the anti-bullying program to 400 schools this year around the country. Amos, who submitted a video to a HORSE competition hosted by the Globetrotters, is known for his therapy work with youth throughout South Florida.

    OPENING FRIDAY:

    THE SNOWMAN

    Unlike Frosty, The Snowman (R) isn't a jolly, happy soul. He's a serial killer who murders after snowfalls, keeping him busy in Norway where an alcoholic detective (Michael Fassbender) specializes in — wait for it — cold cases.

  4. 5 ways you know it's fall in Florida, even when it's too hot

    Events

    I've recently returned from a trip checking out some fall foliage in the Smoky Mountains. And I've got to say the adage about the grass being greener somewhere else probably refers to Florida in autumn. The only other colors one sees around here are the brown leaves of debris from Hurricane Irma.
