Colin Kaepernick will wear a Miami Dolphins hat whether the fans like it or not

Colin Kaepernick Dolphins hat

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick was seen partying on July 4 wearing a Miami Dolphins hat. Naturally, Kaepernick wearing an opposing team’s hat led to scrutiny and complaints from fans.

Though most players would apologize and beg the fans for forgiveness, Kaep took a different approach. The quarterback responded to the backlash with an Instagram posting that included the photo below and this note:

Colin Kaepernick throws 87-mph first pitch at Giants game (Video)

Colin Kaepernick is just showing off at this point.

As if being one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL wasn’t already enough, Kaepernick had to go out and show everyone that he might just be the best baseball player in the league, too.

The San Francisco 49ers quarterback threw out the ceremonial first pitch prior to the San Franciso Giants-Miami Marlins game on Friday and, according to the Giants, his pitch was clocked at 87 mph. Bay Area Sports Guy recorded and posted video of the pitch, which you can see at the top.

Giants relief pitcher Sergio Romo caught Kaepernick’s delivery and didn’t even have any gear on despite the fireball unleashed by Kaep. The two later posed for a picture:

Colin Kaepernick has a pretty ridiculous shoe collection

Colin Kaepernick shoe collection

You think Colin Kaepernick has enough shoes? The San Francisco 49ers star quarterback shared these photos of his sneaker collection on Instagram Thursday and, as you can see, his collection is pretty extensive.

Based on what he shared in the photos, a rough estimate says he has about 100 pairs of shoes. Kaep has a nice mix of casual shoes, boots, Jordans, cross trainers, and basketball shoes, not to mention kicks in about every color imaginable.

Pictures like these should come attached with a warning. Attention fans: do not try this at home, you could go broke.

You know what the funny thing is? Like they said in “Funny People,” the more money you have, the more free stuff they give you. That’s probably how Kaepernick was able to build part of his collection. Still, the man has a long way to go before he reaches Nate Burleson status.

Colin Kaepernick teaches Michelle Obama the art of Kaepernicking (Picture)

Colin-Kaepernick-Michelle-Obama-Kaepernicking

Colin Kaepernick and First Lady Michelle Obama have teamed up to help promote physical education in schools with a campaign called “Let’s Move.” Kaepernick is one of a number of athletes including Serena Williams who have visited schools around the country this year as part of the movement. On Tuesday, the San Francisco 49ers star hung out with Obama and taught her his patented move.

Kaepernick posted a photo on his Instagram account of he and the first lady Kaepernicking together. As you know, Kaepernicking was one of many social media trends that began during the 2012 NFL season when Kaepernick first became a rising star.

While it’s pretty cool that Kaepernick got to hang out with Michelle Obama and it’s great what they are doing together, I want to see the First Lady try her hand at Dufnering. That remains — and probably will always remain — my favorite of the trends.

H/T Shutdown Corner

Jim Harbaugh is concerned about Colin Kaepernick getting too jacked

Colin-Kaepernick-flexingSan Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is capable of being one of the most dangerous players in the NFL because of his ability to make plays with his arm and legs. Kaepernick has tremendous speed for his size, which causes defenses to underestimate him and just plain struggle to keep up. The Green Bay Packers could tell you how fast Kaepernick is, as he torched them for 181 yards and two touchdowns in the Divisional Round of the playoffs.

Kaepernick is also an animal in the weight room, and believe it or not that is a concern for Niners coach Jim Harbaugh.

“If you’re just talking about weightlifting and upper-body strength, yes, I think there is that fear,” Harbaugh told Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com. “It’s something we’ve talked about. ‘I don’t want you getting too jacked-up, Colin.’ I want some speed, quickness.”

Remember, this is the same Kaepernick who supposedly gave Randy Moss the first dislocated finger of his career because of how much zip he puts on the ball. Then during Super Bowl week, teammate Michael Crabtree sarcastically commented that he would rather catch warmup passes from someone else for that reason.

It may sound strange, but Harbaugh is not the first person we have heard express concern over a quarterback beefing up too much. One prominent former coach once said the same thing about Tim Tebow, so it’s not a novel idea. That being said, I’m sure every coach in the NFL would love to have Harbaugh’s problem. Worrying about a quarterback working out too much is a good concern to have.

‘Kaepernicking’ was Colin Kaepernick’s response to tattoo article

Colin Kaepernick‘s touchdown celebration of kissing his biceps inspired a social media trend much like “Tebowing” or “Griffining.” Though “Kaepernicking” appears to be kissing one’s biceps in celebration, the San Francisco 49ers quarterback says there’s more to the act than just that.

Kaepernick defines “Kaepernicking” as kissing one’s tattoos. He told CBS’ Dan Marino that he started it as a response to an article that criticized him for his tattoos.

“To me, it’s someone’s opinion,” Kaepernick said of the article criticizing his tattoos. “My tattoos are me expressing myself, my faith, and what I believe in.”

He also explained how “Kaepernicking” came about.

“That kind of came about from that article. Just kind of showing that I love my tattoos regardless of what people think. I also have ‘faith’ down the front. That’s also my way of showing that everything I do and have been blessed with has come from God.”

Below you can see what Kaepernick’s tattoos look like:
