Noordam v. Maasdam Hoops Showdown in Aruba

While at port in Oranjested, Aruba, Maasdam and Noordam crew members decided to take advantage of the beautiful weather and face-off in a game of basketball.

From the first jump-ball and through all the technical and personal fouls called, the score went back and forth between these two sister ships.  Tensions were high and the energy grew as the last final seconds ran off the clock. Four seconds after the final buzzer, the most beautiful 3-point shot was made which would have broken a close/tied score. When it was all said and done, the two teams tied.

Because of the tied game, I’m sure both teams will say that they won. I think it’s a wonderful opportunity for a future rematch. After all, it would be a great way for us to mix and mingle with our extended HAL family.

Verlie Nelson is Maasdam’s human resources manager.
