Pictures: Barack Obama’s Leather Jacket Steals the Show at Carrier Classic
The Carrier Classic between North Carolina and Michigan State Friday night was one of the coolest sports events I’ve ever seen. The game took place on the USS Carl Vinson, a Naval Aircraft Carrier, in San Diego. It was easily the most awesome sports venue I’ve witnessed. But as sweet as playing on a ship was, many people believe Barack Obama’s bad ass leather bomber jacket was even cooler.
Here’s another look at his sweet jacket:
And here is a gorgeous look of the venue and the San Diego water and downtown skyline:
If you haven’t seen the time lapse video of the court being constructed on the carrier, you should. North Carolina won the game 67-55, getting 17 from Harrison Barnes.
