    More information here -- http://www.meridianfootball.com/news/?p=826 -- but here's the short version:
    I’m proposing an ad-hoc Twitter network of Friday, and Thursday and Saturday, night scores throughout Washington. I have no idea if this is an original idea, but it’s new to me. Twitter has a feature called hashtags, keywords prefaces by “#” that Twitter uses for tracking topics. I am suggesting a common, easy format for people to post scores using the hash, “#wafbscores”. For instance, this coming Friday, I will be at Meridian vs. Squalicum, so I might Twitter a score update as follows:

    “#wafbscores Mer 7 Squalicum 7 1st quarter”

    More Twitter magic comes into play with the simple embedding of a hashtag widget that updates Tweets in the #wafbscores topic in real-time.

    Take Twitter to the Game
