PHILADELPHIA - The National Lacrosse League's Philadelphia Wings are incorporating social networking into their jerseys.

Philadelphia announced on Wednesday that all of its players will have their Twitter handles on their jerseys instead of traditional nameplates on Feb. 12 when they play the Buffalo Bandits. Wings star Max Seibald's jersey, for example will read "@MaxSeibald42" instead of simply "Seibald".

After the game the jerseys will be auctioned off with proceeds going to the American Cancer Society.
