After sustaining a concussion mid-season, San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh decided to keep starting quarterback Alex Smith on the bench in favor of the relatively unknown Colin Kaepernick.
In the nine games since that choice was made, Kaepernick has taken the football world by storm. Despite the second-year player’s inexperience, Kaepernick’s Niners are headed to New Orleans to take on the Baltimore Ravens in Super Bowl XLVII.
With his success, has inevitably come a new celebratory term currently sweeping the nation: ‘Kaepernicking’.
After scoring a touchdown, Kaepernick kisses his bicep in what has quickly become one of the nation’s most widely recognized scoring celebrations. With so many millions of people watching everything he does, the young signal caller has realized that he has an opportunity to cash in on his newfound fame.
Next time you go to kiss your own bicep, maybe you should think twice. You may have to pay the man himself some royalty fees.
So maybe just stick to Tebowing.
