What’s better than a game on the deck of an aircraft carrier? TWO games on aircraft carriers!
After the Carrier Classic’s success featuring North Carolina and Michigan State on the deck of the USS Carl Vinson, another group has announced it’ll stage a game on the flight deck of aircraft carrier museum USS Midway in San Diego on Veterans Day weekend in 2012.
Syndicus Entertainment says San Diego State and Georgetown are among the teams invited, though no confirmation of participants is expected until after the NCAA tournament.
Oddly enough, the Carrier Classic recently announced it wouldn’t hold its event in San Diego for the 2012-13 season because there wouldn’t be a U.S. Navy ship available on that weekend. So it’s headed to Charleston, S.C. Connecticut’s expected to be one of the teams in that event.
Guess they should’ve thought of using a non-active vessel.
