“Felixing” = the New “Tebowing”
Following his historic perfect game last Wednesday afternoon at Safeco Field in Seattle, Mariners ace “King” Felix Hernandez attempts to become only the second player in baseball history to throw back-to-back no-hitters when the M’s face the Cleveland Indians tonight at 7:00 P.M.
Regardless of whether or not he matches the feat (accomplished once before by Cincinnati’s Johnny Vander Meer in 1938) his reaction following the final out of the game has inspired a new twist on ”planking” fad which begat ”Tebowing” in the world of sports.
In fact, it is sweeping through the Northwest and the Mariners are asking fans to Instagram themselves for a chance to win an autographed ball signed by the man his teammates call “Fi Fi.”
Here is my submission:
