If you haven’t heard yet, the new cool hip thing (with #hashtag) in the NFL world is #Griffining. That’s named after Robert Griffin III’s touchdown celebration from last Sunday. It’s sitting up and pointing to the sky.
It has blown up on the Internet and it’s this season’s version of 2011′s “#Tebowing” (getting on one knee to pray). Both these celebrations are a product of a popular player and copying everything that they do.
With Tebow, they had sites and TV segments dedicated to this one action. I really hope that it ends soon. Adding “-ing” to the end of a person’s name in calling a touchdown
The 49ers have apparently now started the term “#Mossing” after Randy Moss’ touchdown (using thumbs to point to name plate on jersey). They’re encouraging fans to send in pictures.
Even the Seahawks have “#12ing“…
I suppose as a fan that would be fun but now it’s gotten to the point where just any celebration will have “-ing” to it.
What if Frank Gore scores a touchdown? Is he #Goring?
What about Kendall Hunter? Is he #Hunting?
Is Delanie Walker #Walking?
What about other players?
Victor Cruz’s salsa dance is #Cruzing?
Donald Driver is #Driving?
I wonder if Christian Ponder would be #Pondering.
Yeah, let’s put an end to it before it gets out of control. I don’t want my celebrations to go viral as #Laming…
