In terms of stories that contain possibilities for localization, Detroit is going to be the host of one of the biggest sporting events of the year, the Final Four. Such a large event has intriguing storylines, such as the economic impact it could have on the city of Detroit. For students, this will be the first time that they will be able to cheer their respective schools on from behind each basket. The NCAA has included this among their list of changes for 2009. If Michigan State was to make it this far, I could interview the leaders of the Izzone and their plans for traveling to Detroit. If not, someone from another school’s student section (or an MSU student from the same state as that school) could be interviewed.
I’m still not quite sure what I want to achieve with this story, but there are many possibilities.
