In May, I had set up this website to even give more options to provide to OHS Sports. I have my own blog ("My Blog" Tab that is 3rd on the left) and even have a blog set up for the people that visit this site ("Your Blog" right below the My Blog tab - BTW it only has one entry, you can post a blog to this website by going to the "Contact me / Advertise" page). Added a Master Schedule Page and "State Titles" page later on and added an "Oxford Links" page to visit the official website of OHS Athletics.
It took me two months to figure out how to set up a page and update it live with scores from other than just my Twitter Account and it took me two hours to set it up - that is after feeling dumb about not thinking of this sooner.
I have set up a Twitter Box to solely keep up with scores from Oxford sports (and will not include neutral games I tweet). But the catch is I had to have a hashtag in order to be able to have each score update seen on that page.
I could've gone a more traditional route in naming the hashtag like OHSScores or OxfordScores but I landed on the idea of "Them Hills."
How did I come up with this? Well I didn't. I borrowed the idea.
A Twitter conversation occurred between me and a well-known teacher at Tupelo High. The teacher was trying to give other schools hashtags - all of which start with "them." The reason being is that Tupelo has adopted the hashtag "themblankets" because when that teacher first saw Tupelo in a sporting event, he thought the Tupelo logo looked like a blanket. He has since came up with hashtags for two other High Schools (Pontotoc's is #themgrapes - I don't know how he came up with that) I came up with "#themhills" - because of the fact that on Highway 6, you must go up and down and up and down many hills while traveling to Pontotoc and Tupelo. Then of course our Athletic Director and Head Football Coach Johnny "Hill" - well you saw where I went with that. There are also two other assistants on the Football team that have the last name "Hill" (Stan and Jake - both Coach Johnny Hill's sons). So that is how I came up with "#themhills" hashtag for updating scores.
Those are my reasons - Center Hill has #RespectTheHill as their adopted hashtag - we will make sure they respect OUR Hills in the coming weeks.
If you have something better - come out with it. Post it on "Your" blog (I will approve such blog posts). I'm interested and cannot wait to hear them.
