Social Media Roundup: ‘Merica ‘dition

Brian Bassett, TheJetsBlog.com

We love the sites who do summary posts of the social media shenanigans around the Jets.  

So whenever we can, we’ll do our best to recap the best of the ongoing fun that the Jets and their players take part in on social media like Twitter, Instagram and Vine.

Happy Fourth!

While the US took a crushing loss earlier this week, it seems that everyone bounced back strong at the end of this week.

Trading up

Looks like Nick Folk turned in his red white and blue to cheer for the team of his forebears and his potential second (first?) citizenship?

The Germans call their team “Die Mannschaft?!?” Too easy, Germany, too easy …

Oh and someone alert those xenophobes in the state department that Folkie might be holding two passports.

Kids do the darnedest things … 

Receiver David Nelson got a greet picture in Haiti of two of the children his foundation is working with … check it out.

Here’s safety Josh Bush’s niece cleaning her plate on the Fourth.

Downtime

Sounds like Leger took it down a notch after his Vegascapades.

Eric Decker participated in a rather scenic golf fundraiser.

Cumby held a youth football camp.

T-Bo has been busy working out …

Want a chance to meet Mo Wilk in a few weeks?

Hometown love

Quinton Coples grew up in Kinston, North Carolina and is having his third annual community day coming up in just a week.

Money on his mind

Seems that Jets OL Ben Ijalana understands that C.R.E.A.M.

Dolla dolla bill y’all.

If you want to see the verse (and understand it) be sure to check out Rap Genius.

Maybe it’s time to step into the 36 Chambers, (NSFW sound) Ben?

The need for speed

Former Jet cornerback Antonio Cromartie is out to prove doubters of his abilities and speed wrong.

Odds & ends

Receiver Jeremy Kerley knows that it’s family that counts.

Demario Davis wishes more people were locking it up than partying down.

Oday Aboushi had a dinner at the Mayor’s house.  Nice!

Former Jet Mike DeVito is happy to have matriculated.

Also, be sure to check out this awesome photo essay and interview with Brad Smith (former Jets jack of all trades) out and about in Philly.

Speaking of former Jets, be sure to check out Vlad’s Instagram page.  This one was hashtagged “#Lookinglikeabeast”

I find it equal parts humanizing and SMDHing.
