Here’s What A Basketball Court On The Deck Of An Aircraft Carrier Looks Like

Cool. I bet they had “Highway to the Danger Zone” just cranked when the entire time workers were installing the court on the deck of the USS Carl Vinson (a name, which for some reason, makes me think of Jerry Seinfeld’s alias Kel Varnsen) for the 2011 Quicken Loans Carrier Classic game between the Michigan State Spartans and the North Carolina Tar Heels.

I also imagine there were a bunch of those aircraft director dudes running around instructing everyone what to do, as that would have been fitting. And a nod to proper aircraft carrier protocol.
