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.

‘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:

Logan Couture busts out some ‘Kaepernicking’ after scoring goal (Video)

Logan-Couture-KaepernickingMany San Jose Sharks fans are also San Francisco 49ers fans, and as we know this is an exciting time for the Bay Area. The Niners are back in the Super Bowl for the first time since 1994, and second-year sensation Colin Kaepernick has led the way. On Thursday night, one of the Sharks players decided to pay tribute to Kaepernick.

San Jose forward Logan Couture scored in the second period of a shootout win over the Edmonton Oilers, and he pretended to kiss his bicep muscle in celebration. As we know, that celebration is now known as Kaepernicking.

“Gotta show some love to the Bay Area teams,” Couture said after the game according to NHL Tonight. “Everyone out here who’s a Sharks fan is usually a Niners fan as well. Obviously, all of us on the Sharks are rooting for them on Sunday, so just a little shout-out to those guys.”

As Puck Daddy pointed out, Couture is a Buffalo Bills fan. Sucks to be him, so I don’t blame him for latching onto San Francisco’s success.
