Like Vanessa was saying about the classics not fitting into the article, I too had the same problem. But I think the article by Red Smith, Miracle of Coogan's Bluff, kinda fits mine. I want to write my article with a dramatic flair: it a drag queen competition so there will be winners and losers.
The story was winding up, and it wasn't the happy ending that such a tale demands. Poetic justice was a phrase without a meaning (279 ABNW).
I thought that this article, which is talking about one of baseballs greatest games is very different from the way I remember being told about the game. This is very much more dramatic then the radio broadcast, and the clips from the tv. I mean this is Casey at Bat stuff. This is why America fell in love with baseball -maybe not now-but this type of writing brought people to the games. I want to try and emulate the drama here with the drama in the competition. I just don't know if it will work.
