Couple celebrate anniversary in Oklahoma City with the Globetrotters

George and Lin Wilson went to a Globetrotters game just days after being married in 1963.
FROM STAFF REPORTS Published: February 2, 2013

George and Lin Wilson spent their first date after getting married on Valentine's Day in 1963 at a Harlem Globetrotters game. This year the couple will do the same for their 50th anniversary, but they got to have lunch with a Globetrotter player first.

The Wilsons ate lunch at Zio's in Bricktown on Friday with Fight Time Lang, who plays for the Globetrotters and who was a popular contestant on “The Amazing Race.” The player's visit was a surprise for Lin Wilson that her husband helped arrange.

“It's a beautiful thing that they've been together for this long,” Lang said. “Fifty years later, I'm honored to be invited to surprise them. I've heard that they haven't been to a Globetrotters game since they got married so we've got to put on a good show for them.”

The Globetrotters will play at Chesapeake Energy Arena at 2 and 7 p.m. on Feb. 9.
