Quicken Loans Carrier Classic
As I watched the coverage for this all day, I realized how amazing this is for not just North Carolina and Michigan State, but for everyone. Today is Veteran's Day and what a great way to honor those who serve our country by playing the game on an aircraft carrier and only allowing members of our armed forces to attend the game for the most part. Barack Obama being at the game just adds to the importance. It may not seem like an important game since it is the first game for both teams but seeing what our country has gone through in the last 10 years, we can all sit together and know that we don't deserve to be at that game. We don't. Unless you have served our country, you don't deserve to be at that game. Today we honor those who did serve our country. They put their life on the line for our freedom every single day. This is the least that we can do for them. Allowing them to be in attendance for a possible once in a lifetime event, is the least we can do for them. We should be doing more. Thank a veteran today. Thank one everyday for their service. As they just did the evening colors, it sent chills up my spine. This is such a unique event. Their may be a winner on the scoreboard, but in actuality no one loses today. Today I am proud to say that I am an American.
