Richard spoke about Arsenal Twitter Takeovers last week's episode, here they recap #AskArsene with a video post on Facebook.  Please tweet in your nominations for social media post of the week to @SportsGeek or @seancallanan.
Honorable mention to Dallas Mavericks for parody of Volvo Van Damme ad with owner Mark Cuban.

Well done to FFA's Brian Gibson on sharing the Socceroos Team sheet with Player Twitter handles.

But Shane Harmon's Westpac Stadium takes out the Social Media Post of the week by trolling Mexico with this tweet, getting press around the world.
