Thought of the Day – 11/11/11

On Friday, North Carolina and Michigan State played a college basketball game on the flight deck of the USS Carl Vinson – an aircraft carrier.

I dig the concept of playing traditional sports in unconventional settings.  Therefore I humbly suggest the following:

  • An NHL hockey game in Death Valley, CA.
  • A NASCAR race on Interstate 80 in Nebraska.  They start at the Wyoming border and race east to one of the casinos in Council Bluffs, Iowa. 
  • A football game on a handful of garbage barges floating in the Pacific Ocean.  Appropriately, the participating teams will each be in last place.
  • A baseball game in a random cornfield in Iowa.  Bonus points for ghosts or soliloquies by James Earl Jones.
  • A diving meet at Niagara Falls.
  • A high jump meet at the bottom of the Grand Canyon.
  • A shot put meet next to a mine field.
