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
