    Depth perception, wind, etc. This is going to be interesting.

    Re: Michigan State To Play BB Game on Aircraft Carrier

    They've been trying to get this going for over a year now and last I heard North Carolina was interested in playing them for that game. The logistics and cash were the biggest hurdles but from what Hollis said is that it wasn't a matter of if but when.

    It doesn't say that they would be playing the game on the flight deck. More likely they would be playing the game in the hangar bay below the flight deck.


    ...Straight going donkey...

    Didn't we learn anything from "Hot Shots?"



    What ever happened to truth, justice and the American Way?

    The Harlem Globetrotters did that on the flight deck a lot. Of course it was against the "Washington Generals" so the safety was scripted in.


    There can be only one.

    Re: Michigan State To Play BB Game on Aircraft Carrier

    What I want to see, is a game of basketball, while the deck is an active runway. Kinda like when we used to play basketball on the street, and had to yell "Car!". Except with jets instead of cars. And on a moving street.

    Re: Michigan State To Play BB Game on Aircraft Carrier

    Wait, they're playing the game in Jacksonville, Florida? The carrier is going to be docked when they play? What a cop-out. PLAY ON THE HIGH SEAS. I'd watch that. Replacing your stationary arena (with a roof) with a stationary arena (without a roof) does not impress me. If you insist on carrying out this charade, then fine: I'm gonna tape a sign onto Hilton that says "THE MOON" and make Iowa State the first basketball team to play on the Moon.

    Pansies.


    True and Valiant

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    It'd most likely be a terrorist threat if it was in international water. I'd prefer Tom Izzo and Roy Williams live through this experience.

    I agree with half of this.
