What’s In a Word? Jumping on the ‘Bandwagon’ Definition

While many of my #timsbit daily notes on Twitter come from articles I write, this may be a first: An editor wanting a story based off a #timsbit. And the best part, I was only getting info for this #timsbit to rib a friend. When I tweeted out a little note about the origin of the word “bandwagon” an editor at SI let me know I should expand on that for him. What resulted was a full-fledged article linking sports and history to the word bandwagon. Check it out in SI’s Extra Mustard section here.
