Colin Kaepernick has been having a hell of a season so far taking the starting QB position in San Francisco by the horns and riding it straight into Super Bowl XLVII.

Now the 2nd year star looks to trademark his bicep-kissing celebration that his went viral and caused him all sorts of notoriety.
He has already filed a trademark for “Kaepernicking,” a signature move that has swept through the West Coast during the 49ers’ playoff run, according to San Francisco 49ers report.
Citing the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office website, ESPN.com said Kaepernick registered Jan. 14, and plans to use the image on clothing.
The official “Kaepernicking” shirt is made by a company called Sportiqe. Some proceeds go to Camp Taylor, which organizes camps for children with congenital heart defects.
