Your Complete Guide To #Kaepernicking

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — ‘Kaepernicking’ is all the craze now.

What is it, you ask? San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s touchdown celebration of flexing his right arm and kissing his bicep.

The act has taken off online as many of the 49er Faithful have posted pictures or videos of themselves in the act at home, in bars, on the street, at work or just about any other place they frequent. Some fans have even positioned their toddlers or dogs in the position.

‘Kaepernicking’ first started weeks ago after Kaepernick replaced Alex Smith, though the act has increased during San Francisco’s run up to this Sunday’s NFC title game against the Atlanta Falcons. Kaepernick himself often retweets other fans’ pictures of the act with this Twitter hashtag: #Kaepernicking.
