It’s among the latest social media crazes and Colin Kaepernick’s popularity is about as high as it can be right now. Setting an NFL record for rushing yards in a single-game by a quarterback certainly doesn’t hurt. So, strike while the iron is hot right? That’s just what it appears the Niners sensation is looking to do.
Per the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, Colin Kaepernick has trademarked the term “Kaepernicking.” #49ers

Kaepernick has made a habit of celebrating touchdowns with the above pictured gesture, which has been noted isn’t the most original. But that’s alright because now is what matters. Tebowing, and other fads, came and went so now it’s Colin’s time in the spotlight. Might as well capitalize on it.
