User testing scenario for IRL tests

This is a scenario that could be presented to users for testing at meetups or coffee shops. This scenario assumes you are using the RSL Diary export content (test site is up here), but can be adapted if you want to create your own test content. Feel free to make suggestions to the scenario setup text and I can update here (I pretty much just threw it together). The usertesting.com scenario was adapted from this (as opposed to the other way around).

Scenario:

RSL Diary is a blog about Major League Soccer team, Real Salt Lake. Your task is to change the look and feel of the site however you choose for a soccer blog about a professional team. The team’s colors are dark red (claret), dark blue (cobalt) and gold — but don’t be afraid to go outside these guidelines if you have a more interesting idea.
