And you thought you hated Tebowing? Well, get ready for the latest trend that's sure to make you hate the Internet in … oh … about two weeks' time. It's called “Griffining” after Robert Griffin III, and it's based off his pose in this photo, taken after he had thrown an 88-yard touchdown pass to Pierre Garcon on Sunday.

Credit Burgundy Blog for starting the trend. And now you have droves of people putting their own spin on it on Twitter. For example:
|Griffining in front of the Griffin. (@AmBAM-iJAM)|
|Indoctrinating the youth. (@louventuri)|
|Griffining after BBQing. (@GoodOlJohnnyK)|
At this point, I can hardly wait for the next defender who sacks RG3 to pull out his own version of Griffining.
