The Nevada men’s hoops team hasn’t exactly given their fans a lot to cheer about this season. They’re 10-8 overall and off to a 1-3 start in the Mountain West Conference. Wednesday night, the crowd at the Lawlor Events Center celebrated something totally unrelated to the basketball program. They celebrated former Nevada quarterback Colin Kaepernick who will start for the 49ers in next Sunday’s Super Bowl.
Kaepernick has also made “Kaepernicking” (kissing your right biceps) popular, so much so that he’s looking into trademarking it.
The 7,924 in attendance for Wednesday’s game were out to make their night somewhat memorable (Nevada lost to San Diego State 78-57) and they did so by engaging in the biggest group Kaepernicking in the history of the short-lived phenomenon.
The craze began after the 49ers QB went off during their 45-31 NFC divisional playoff win over Green Bay. Kaepernick’s recurring biceps kissing caught on. Here’s video of the Wolf Pack faithful Wednesday.
