(PHOTOS) RG3 inspires newest trend; get ready for Griffining

By Josh Katzowitz | NFL Writer

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.

It would appear we have a new trend on our hands.(US Presswire)

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.
