‘Kaepernicking’ gesture rips off Scott Steiner?



From USAToday.com:

After his prime-time performance in the San Francisco 49ers’ 45-31 NFC divisional playoff win against Green Bay Saturday night, quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s recurring touchdown celebration (he kisses his right bicep after scoring) has earned a name.

The 50-year-old pro wrestler should be credited with originating the move, although “Steinering” doesn’t quite sound so cool.

    Just like Tebow didn’t come up with praying on one knee…Cowboys have been doing it for years. All this naming gimmick crap is getting lame.
