Harlem Globetrotters Flight Time Lang and Big Easy Lofton, who recently competed in the Emmy Award-winning CBS reality hit, “The Amazing Race,” will reunite with their world famous teammates in Kansas City, as part of the Globetrotters’ 2010 “Magical Memories” World Tour at Sprint Center for two games on Saturday, January 2 at 2pm and 7pm.
With a television audience of millions watching on CBS primetime each Sunday night, Flight Time and Big Easy battled 11 other teams and successfully raced in 11 suspenseful episodes – finishing first in two legs – reaching the final four before being eliminated with only one episode remaining.
