The Harlem Globetrotters and their farcical tour de force come to Boston this weekend, playing at the TD Garden both Saturday and Sunday afternoon. Thanks to the Patriots, some of the kids from the Boys and Girls Clubs of Boston will get to see those games for free; and thanks to the Patriots' left tackle, as well as a couple of the Globetrotters, some of the kids at one of the city's schools now know how they can help prevent bullying.

Nate Solder joined Buckets Blakes and TNT Maddox at the Eliot K-8 School on Wednesday afternoon, teaming up to present "The ABCs of Bullying Prevention" as part of the Globetrotters' newest school initiative. It was one of more than 400 school visits the hoop team will make this year to spread the message they developed with the National Campaign to Stop Violence.

Solder and Maddox -- who is is the first female Globetrotter in 20 years, and only the ninth women in the team’s 87-year history -- both hail from Colorado, and Wednesday they came together to tell students that, in this case, the ABCs stand for Action, Bravery, and Compassion.

In the name of the Patriots, the Globetrotters also donated 100 tickets to this weekend's games to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Boston.
