Move over Tebowing, Te’oing and Griffining. Here comes Kaepernicking.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has filed for a trademark to his signature pose with U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. He filed for the trademark on Jan. 14.

Kaepernick celebrates touchdowns by flexing his right arm and kissing his bicep and the internet craze started to call the gesture “Kaepernicking.”

Kaepernick, a second-year player out of Nevada, has started nine NFL games and has led his team to Super Bowl XLVII against the Baltimore Ravens. Kaepernick has thrown for 496 yards and three touchdowns in two playoff victories.

Can somebody please tell this tatted up dirtbag religious freak that it's unsportsmanlike? No veterans in the locker room?

 @CarlEdwardJansen Tatted up dirtbag religious freak? I don't think so. Not once has he thrown around religion like tebow does. Deffinantly not a dirtbag either. All his teammates love him and has never talked about how good he is. What this article doesn't state is that the proceeds are going to kids with heart disease, not some guy who wants to make a buck. So it's not about him.
