It will not save us, this game, we know that. But for a brief moment, we have the nation’s attention. Whatever stories get written, let them talk about pounding away, doing things right, asking only a workman’s due, but asking nothing less. Let them talk about family and perseverance and what it can accomplish. Let them talk about traditions worth celebrating and preserving.
That way, no matter what the final score, they’ll be talking about the basketball team AND the state it occupies. The Spartans want to make a memory out of what you’re witnessing here. The rest of us don’t want you to forget.
So far the reviews on the Detroit experience have been very good. As with the Super Bowl and the World Series, out of town visitors have been left with a very positive impression of the people and of the entire area. Good job Detroit!
LET'S GO STATE!
