Look, I’m in agreement with you: “_____ing,” in regards to some damn pose an NFL quarterback made or makes frequently is a terrible, awful trend. First there was Tebowing, then there was Griffining, and now there’s “Kaepernicking,” which is to kiss your right bicep after scoring a touchdown, (and yes, Colin Kaepernick DID get the term trademarked, don’t worry). Us average folk apparently like to mimic these motions when we do well at average stuff, like successfully blending a smoothie, or whatever.
All that said, I do sort of appreciate Logan Couture throwing a little love the way of his fellow athletes in California by Kaepernicking after scoring against the Oilers last night. And hey, when you’re undefeated after seven games, you’re allowed to have a little fun.
Okay, one and done, cool. Let’s just not make a habit of this.
