Get Your Tweet On
We love Twitter around here. It’s a great way for us to connect with other Hudl employees in the office in and outside of work. It’s also become a great way for us to connect with coaches and athletes. We love seeing a sweet highlight tweeted by an athlete from their Hudl account or being able to answer questions from coaches quickly from Twitter. Inc.com lays out reasons a CEO should tweet, and we think these are awesome reasons for coaches, parents, or athletes to tweet as well. Building relationships with your team and fans has never been easier.
Parent breaks Alabama’s National Championship Trophy
It’s the coveted possession of everyone involved in college football: the eight-pound Waterford crystal football that sits atop the AFCA National Championship Trophy. Alabama had their recently-won 2011 trophy on display for their annual A-Day Game last Saturday. Carleton Tinker, father of senior long snapper Carson Tinker, watched numerous recruits pick up the trophy to see what it felt like. Tinker did the same, placed it back down on the stand and walked away. He turned around when he heard the trophy tumble and saw the $30,000 crystal ball shatter on the floor.
“In my mind, it was slow motion,” Tinker said, “as it rolled off the top of the trophy case onto the table onto the floor. I’m not sure if I bumped the table when I turned around, or if my foot caught on the large tablecloth they had draped and puddled on the floor. That’s exactly what happened.”
Happy Birthday, Fenway!
Fenway Park turns 100 today. Lovers and haters of the Red Sox alike can appreciate the significance of this birthday. Reading this history of the famous stadium can make anyone appreciate the ‘Sistine Chapel’ of baseball.
“Our society is so disposable, so quick to tear down buildings and build something else,” Smith says. “Fenway is such a classic. To me, it was important to try to save because it’s been a model for a whole generation of ballparks.”
