Blankets?

What does #themblankets mean?

This question is asked a lot.

The answer is simple: The fighting waveman looks like a blanket.

This hashtag was kicked into action in the winter of 2011. With the help of Tupelo students, the idea spread like wildfire across Twitter, banners, posters, t-shirts, gyms, and text messages. A piece in May of 2011 was even written about the craze in the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal. Click HERE to read the article.

Other schools have even helped our cause by using the phrase.
