Wings host Twitter jersey night

The city's indoor pro lacrosse team will have players wear Twitter handles on their jerseys this weekend.

Here's a quick reminder about story we alerted you to in late December ...

The Philadelphia Wings, of the National Lacrosse League (NLL), will wear jerseys featuring their Twitter handles on the back this weekend (Saturday, 4 p.m., vs. Buffalo). They are the first pro sports team in North America to do it. Prior to the season, the Wings instructed all players to get Twitter accounts and even trained them on the social media network.
