NCAA Basketball on an Aircraft Carrier

Michigan State and the University of North Carolina will be playing on the deck of the USS  Carl Vinson which is based in San Diego.  That just happens to be the ship Osama bin Laden was one before he was buried at sea.  Magic Johnson and James Worthy will be honorary captains representing their alma maters and President Obama will be in attendance.

Here’s an article about the event, but here’s an interesting graphic about the setup.  I hope the players understand what a unique honor this is.

And since I’m a sucker for time-lapse video, here’s one of the setup.
