When Tim Tebow knelt on the field to pray in front of thousands of fans, he inadvertently caused a craze known as “Tebowing”. It essentially went viral in the real world, sweeping football fans everywhere as they emulated the young player.
But now a new fad is in town, and it all started when 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick flexed his guns after a touchdown over the weekend.
Kaepernick, who replaced Alex Smith several weeks ago, has begun posting pictures of fans doing their own Kaepernicking, which reached an all-time high after his team’s victory over the Packers this past weekend.
