                           “Kaepernicking” is filed for Trademark Status



We all know professional athletes are stars, especially if you are someone like the 49ers quarterback
Colin Kaepernick. They are famous, popular, adored. I guess it should be OK for them to take advantage
of their star status.

Kaepernick is known for kissing his biceps after every touch down. The term “Kaepernicking” was
coined after his record-setting playoff win over the Green Bay Packers. Fans everywhere began
“Kaepernicking” – kissing their biceps. It became a mass media trend over night.




In response, Colin Kaepernick has filed paperwork to trademark the term “Kaepernicking. Why not?
Tim Tebow and Robert Griffin III trademarked “Tebowing” and “Griffining,” (you know, the Prayer
Stance and the Sitting on the Field with Hands Held High.) The popularity of their trademarks has pretty
much died out, so it must have been time for a new one.

Kaepernick filled this need. “Kaepernicking” is new and hot. And it’s getting trademarked.

So watch out. You may have to pay Colin Kaepernick every time you kiss your biceps!
