Felix Hernandez Enters Pop Culture, Inspires ‘Felixing’ as Alternative to Tebowing


August 19, 2012

Move over, Tebowing. Felixing is the new phenomenon.

When Mariners pitcher Felix Hernandez threw the 23rd perfect game in Major League Baseball history on Wednesday, he celebrated the last out by lifting his right leg and waving both arms in the air.

Ever since, the pose has taken on a life of its own. Teammates Charlie Furbush, Lucas Luetge, John Jaso and Tom Wilhelmsen mimicked Hernandez' form before Saturday's game.

The movement isn't just limited to baseball. When Seattle Sounders standout Fredy Montero scored a goal for his club, he commemorated the moment by Felixing his heart out.

And the phenomenon is also gaining some traction in the entertainment industry. Pearl Jam lead singer Eddie Vedder got into the action upon a recent visit to Safeco Field.
