It was really just a matter of time before someone else decided to do a little Kaepernicking after a touchdown. While I am sure there have been other instances, Kaepernicking took center stage for a moment during Saturday's Alabama-Texas A&M; game. After the Aggies went up 14-0, Johnny Manziel did a little Kaepernicking of his own. Here is a quick GIF of it:
He gave his bicep a kiss, but unfortunately, the timing was a little off. The Kaepernicking took place after running back Ben Malena ran in a one-yard touchdown. As we all know, Kap generally does his Kaepernicking after he has scored a touchdown. I suppose it is open to interpretation, but it's one more thing to find amusing about Johnny Football.
I actually don't mind all the crazy hubbub surrounding him and some of his actions. He has an "I don't give a [site decorum] attitude at times, and it leaves some people fuming. Personally, I just find myself entertained by it all. And so, when he rolls out another celebration (following last week's "autographing" celebration), I'll continue to be entertained.
Kap started doing this in response to the article about his tattoos. Maybe Johnny Football figures it's sort of a "rebelling against the man" kind of thing. Or maybe he just thinks it looks cool, so he's gonna do it. Whatever the case, I remain amused by all this.
