Colin Kaepernick TD celebration inspires ‘Kaepernicking’ trend (Pictures)

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick set records in his team’s 45-31 win over the Green Bay Packers in the playoffs on Saturday, and he also inspired a social media trend.

The second-year player has been celebrating his touchdowns with a kiss on his biceps (seen above). After his outstanding performance Saturday — he rushed for 181 yards (a quarterback record), two touchdowns, and threw for 263 yards and two touchdowns — many Niners fans began following his lead by imitating the celebration.

Much like “Tebowing” and “Griffining,” “Kaepernicking” has become a social media trend.

Kaepernick’s celebration isn’t exactly unique. As USA Today points out, wrestler Scott Steiner has been doing it for years. Even Metta World Peace has done it a few times in the past. But Kaepernick has done it on the biggest stage, so he is the one receiving the naming honors.

    So the biggest stage takes naming honors?  So if someone else does it in the superbowl, it will be renamed again?
