Ship That Buried bin Laden Could Host Carrier Classic

The Carrier Classic 11-11-11 featuring Michigan State and North Carolina will likely take place aboard the USS Carl Vinson in downtown San Diego, the same aircraft carrier that carried Osama bin Laden‘s body to sea.

“Now that the Carl Vinson is back safe and sound and America is now well-aware of the important mission that was tasked to the Carl Vinson, we find it to be a source of pride that this ship will make history twice in 2011,” said Mike Whalen of the Morale Entertainment Foundation.

A site survey is planned for early next week and there’s a 99 percent chance the game will be on the Carl Vinson, according to Whalen.

ESPN will broadcast the first men’s college basketball game to be played on the deck of a United States military aircraft carrier.
