My first advance story I liked has to do with the anticipated showdown between the Seattle Seahawks (1-0) and their division rivals, the San Francisco 49ers (1-0). This article has an advance slant which focus on how the 49ers will use new wide receiver Anquan Boldin, and how the Seahawks plan to defend him. The piece is very informative and educates the average reader on a key matchup in the game.
Another advance story I found that I liked has to do with the highly anticipated “rematch” between Alabama (2-0, 1-0) and Texas A&M (2-1, 0-1) which took place before the nation’s eyes this past Saturday afternoon. I like how this advance looks at a preview in an itemized layout which focused on key points, without all the informaton being jumbled into a few paragraphs. I was able to keep focus while being informed without growing overwhelmed and bored.
