Are you kidding me?

From the ‘it must be april fools’ department — Roy Disney has bought the Harlem Globetrotters.

Roy Disney’s Shamrock Holdings has purchased 80 percent of the Harlem Globetrotters from the team’s CEO, Mannie Jackson. Mr. Jackson will remain the team’s chairman and CEO as well as retaining 20 percent of the team.
