San Francisco 49ers starting QB Colin Kaepernick may have inadvertently started a trend after last Sunday’s game against the Miami Dolphins. After his 50-yard touchdown run Kaepernick brushed and kissed his tattoos in a move that was clearly directed at the absurd comments that were made earlier in the week about his tattoos. Later that evening he posted a tweet with a picture of his celebratory move saying, “love my tats even if you don’t.”
Yesterday evening Kaepernick re-tweeted hundreds of pictures he received from fans all over the world that were “Kaepernicking” in support of the young quarterback. If you follow Colin on twitter you certainly noticed your timeline getting bombarded by these messages. It remains to be seen if this catches on but it is fun nonetheless and I have to imagine this will forever be his thing when he scores a TD. It certainly appears as though Harbaugh and the 49ers will be Kaepernicking all the way.
