It’s a simple sequence: Do something awesome. Flex guns. Kiss the hot steel that helped you just put your team up another seven points.

To say Colin Kaepernick’s signature move ‘Kaepernicking’ has swept the nation would be an understatement. And now, it has been reported that he’s looking to trademark the maneuver.

Not a bad idea considering that what started on the field as a simple celebration has caught on in a big way and is being mimicked all over the place.

Little girls are Kaepernicking:

Hockey player Logan Couture is Kaepernicking:

They’re even doing it en mass at Kaep’s alma mater, the University of Nevada, where they recently held “the world’s largest Kaepernicking.”

Obviously, this whole thing is becoming a movement now, and the 49ers’ starting quarterback is looking to cash in.

What kind of merchandise can we expect to see emblazoned with Kaep’s new slogan?

Your guess is as good as mine, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see something like those big green Hulk hands being replicated, except it would be a full muscled arm you could stick your hand into and then kiss its tattooed surfaced.

All we know is that Kaep is certainly striking while his iron is hot by trademarking his move. 

And, of course, Skip Bayless thinks it’s a bad idea:
