Last night I had the opportunity to go to the Mallard’s playoff game against Rapid City with a few friends. It was one of the first sporting events I have been to in a LONG time that I wasn’t working/getting paid to attend. As I was sitting at the game I caught myself thinking about how I would write a story recapping the game if I was the person that was in charge of doing so. I realized that hockey is a much lower scoring sport than lacrosse and miles different than swimming and therefore a story would definitely would be a different style than what I am used to. All of these thoughts were flying around in my head as the game was taking place. When I get the opportunity to talk to some other sports information directors or even interns I will be curious to see if they ever run into things like this too. And for the record the Mallards won 5-1!
