Tricks - not miracles - on order as Globetrotters meet pope
VATICAN CITY - Pope Francis pulled off some trick moves in St. Peter's Square on Wednesday.
He had great instructors: The Harlem Globetrotters.
The basketball troupe met with the pope during his weekly general audience.
They presented a framed No. 90 jersey backed with "Pope Francis," and encouraged him to play with them.
With teammates Hi-Lite Bruton, Ant Atkinson, and Big Easy Lofton looking on, Flight Time Lang got a red, white, and blue ball spinning on his own finger, then took the pope's right index finger and let a smiling Francis try it himself.
The Globetrotters are touring Italy.
