Twin Peaks of Carnival's Boss

Is there anything better in the heat than enjoying a nice breeze? Mickey Arison doesn't think there is, although his preceding connection is different than most.

Arison owns Carnival Corporation. Okay, he's the chairman and CEO, so he pretty much owns Carnival Cruise Lines.

He also owns the Miami Heat.

Even if you're not a basketball fan, you may have heard the Heat won the NBA Championship the other day. Simultaneously, Arison's other pride and joy, the Carnival Breeze, was sailing around the Mediterranean introducing people to the cruise line's newest (and 23rd) ship, launched just days before the NBA final series.

Passengers on the new ship were found cheering the Heat's victory while lounging on deck chairs in front of a huge TV screen.

In horse racing, Arison would be celebrating winning a Daily Double. In cruising, it's just…well, Heat and Breeze.
