Obama to attend first ever “Carrier Classic’


Tonight, President Obama will attend the first-ever Carrier Classic, a college basketball game that takes place on the USS Carl Vinson, a Navy aircraft carrier. (This carrier’s claim to fame is that it’s the ship that carried Osama bin Laden to his final resting place.) Basketball on a huge ship is pretty cool, but possible cooler is this timelapse video of the court and bleachers being built for the game:

Along with watching the game, the President will also do interviews with the Armed Forces Network and ESPN before heading to Honolulu, HI for the Asian Pacific Economic Cooperation Summit.
