Easily Follow the Jets Gang on Twitter

Want to be your first friend to know when Braylon Edwards runs afoul with the law? Or what Mark Sanchez is doing during his free time? Or who Darrelle Revis plans to put on Revis Island next? Well, now you can with one easy click.

Check out Connect Jets, which syncs with your Twitter account and let’s you follow all the Jets on the service at once.

There are 18 Jets currently on Twitter, everyone from Matt Higgins (Executive Vice President, New York Jets) to Calvin Pace (“Starting linebacker for the NY Jets. Sneaker Collector. Foodie. Wake Forest Alum. Community Servant. Opinionated individual.”)

If we were Jets fans, this would be awesome. Since we’re not, the hardest part is unfollowing them all.

Tony Ponturo Getting Lifetime Innovator Award at PromaxBDA Sports Media Marketing Awards

Former Busch Media Group CEO Tony Ponturo will receive the lifetime innovator award at the 2010 PromaxBDA Sports Media Marketing Awards. At Anheuser-Busch, Ponturo formed and managed relationships with essentially every major sports league and event, managing the brand’s presence at the Super Bowl, Olympics and FIFA World Cup, among others.

He is also the producer of the just-opened play “Lombardi” on Broadway.

“Tony Ponturo has been integral in shaping the entire sports and entertainment landscape over the last two decades,” said Jonathan Block-Verk, president and CEO of PromaxBDA. “His career at Anheuser-Busch is legendary and celebrating his body of work, and contribution to this industry, at the inaugural Sports Media Marketing Awards will be a true privilege for our organization.”

Ponturo will receive the award November 18 in New York City.
