11.11.11 is a day I will never forget. In honor of Veteran's Day, ESPN held the "Carrier Classic" in San Diego.  It was a college basketball match up played on the USS Carl Vinson Aircraft Carrier (the same ship that Osama bin Laden's body was thrown to sea from). The teams: UNC (which I'm an alum) and Michigan State.  Some of the biggest basketball legends were in attendance; James Worthy, Magic Johnson, Vince Carter, Jerry West, Tyler Hansborough, just to name a few.  Oh, and President Obama was there!

The Tarheels made me proud winning by 12 points but the best part of the night was being surrounded by 7,000 service women and men who protect this great country.  Thank for all that you do, everyday.
