One year after our proud nation came to grips with #Tebowing, a new Internet meme is sweeping the land.
#Griffining has entered the lexicon.
"What are you doing?" "Just Griffining at the Airport" --> twitter.com/Griffining/staâ¦â Griffining (@Griffining) September 10, 2012
Spawned by Robert Griffin III's first NFL touchdown pass with the Washington Redskins -- an 88-yard strike to receiver Pierre Garcon -- Griffining plays off RG3 sitting planted on the ground, both arms held high to signal the score downfield.
RG3 is aware of the craze and gave it his seal of approval on Monday.
"@SarahGrieco: Alright @RGIII! "Griffining Destroys Tebowing" http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1329082-robert-griffin-iiis-dominance-see-rise-of-griffining-destroys-tebowing â¦" This is hilarious- Robert Griffin III (@RGIII) September 10, 2012
This appears to be the only meme pulled from the glory of Week 1. #Weedening -- the act of vanishing for minutes at a time below a 100-yard American flag before your first day at work -- has yet to gain traction.
