WASHINGTON (AP) - A member of the Harlem Globetrotters plans to dribble and spin a basketball over the Arlington Memorial Bridge to kick off a series of games in the Washington area.

Herbert "Flight Time" Lang will make his way across the 1.2-mile bridge from Arlington Cemetery to the Lincoln Memorial about 1:30 p.m. Monday. The event marks the beginning of D.C.'s "Globetrotter Week," including games at the Verizon Center in Washington and the Patriot Center in Fairfax.

The team also plans to visit local schools.

Lang is playing his 13th season with the 86-year-old exhibition squad. He and his teammate Nate "Big Easy" Lofton were contestants on "The Amazing Race" twice. Lang has also appeared on "The Bachelorette" and "Hell's Kitchen."

On Sunday, Lang told our news partners at WTOP that the Globetrotters, who have not lost a game in six years, will be playing a "surprise team" during their stop at the Verizon Center and Patriot Center.
