Harbaugh, Dantonio to wear #AmazonDetroit headsets during UM-MSU
Every Michigan versus Michigan State matchup is a treat for college sports fans. Saturday night, the in-state rivals will square off in a primetime college football matchup on ABC. It’s a highly anticipated Big 10 showdown between No. 7 Michigan (4-0) and Michigan State (3-1).
Millions are expected to tune in. If you watch the game, you might notice something unusual about the headsets worn by coaches Jim Harbaugh and Mark Dantonio: they’ll both read “#AmazonDetroit.”
The Twitter hashtag was created in an attempt to lure Amazon’s $5 billion second headquarters (the first is in Seattle, Wash.) to Detroit. It would no doubt be a huge economic boon for Motown.
There is stiff competition to land Amazon’s new HQ, though. More than 100 cities are in contention – spanning both the U.S. and Canada. New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Cleveland are among the other American cities hoping to receive the business.
Amazon put out a request for proposals Sept. 7, and Detroit responded quickly. Below is the #AmazonDetroit hype video the Detroit team assembled.
