Social media campaigns have led to Betty White hosting Saturday Night Live and brought help to other causes benefitting bigger groups of people, which may be why Dolphins guard Richie Incognito has started one to keep tackle Jake Long in Miami.
Incognito started the effort on Twitter Friday with meesages including the hashtag “bringjakehome” and has spent the last couple of days retweeting and replying to others who have picked up on his efforts. He’s also kept up his own work, expanding his bag tricks to include posting photos of him and Long dressed as Batman and Superman on Halloween and a picture of the two linemen with the message “I miss us.” And then there’s this gem, which comes via a scene in Jerry Maguire having nothing to do with football.
Dear jake, u complete me Richard;) #bringjakehome—

Long may come to a decision too, which is a shame because we’re curious to know which song would be playing on the boom box when Incognito holds it over his head outside Long’s house.
