What you missed from "Morning Joe" live in the Motor City (at WSU)

MSNBC cohosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzenzinski were on the air live from 6-9 a.m. during a broadcast of "Morning Joe" at Wayne State University's Community Arts Auditorium on Sept. 18. They repeatedly referenced the graduation of the inaugural class of Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses program in southeast Michigan, a $20-million effort to help entrepreneurs and encourage small-business growth. Goldman Sachs was one of the sponsors of the broadcast. Other positive buzz topics included construction on the Detroit light rail system, plans for the new Red Wings arena, the explosion of tech companies on the Madison block of downtown Detroit (cited by guest and downtown developer-in-chief Dan Gilbert) and the playoff chances of the Detroit Tigers. As a nod to their setting, both Brzezinski and Scarborough held up Wayne State sweatshirts - and for a portion of the broadcast Brzezinski sported a green Wayne State jacket.
