Desert Storm – Twenty One Years Later: The Dhahran Clipper softball team hosted the Navy SEALS to a softball game and supper.  Prior to the game the Senior NCO, Curt, was told that regardless of the outcome of the game the Clippers would not accept a challenge in water polo.  Final score, Dhahran Clippers 18 Navy SEALS 2.  Dave Larson sponsored a Mexican food night for the warriors before they departed for Half Moon Bay.  This started a close friendship between the team and the Navy unit that would last the entire war.  Every Wednesday the Clippers would host the SEALS until they finally deployed north.
