Not Much Interest in President's Speech in Downtown Ypsilanti Tuesday Night

There weren't many people interested in what the President had to say in his State of the Union speech in Downtown Ypsilanti Tuesday night.  

Most were more interested in watching the Michigan State-Iowa basketball game.  

Some said they were DVR-ing the speech and planned to watch it later.  

Others said they saw no point in watching the speech, expecting it to be light on substance.
