'Felixing' Catches On

I posted last week about our having attended the Felix Hernandez Perfect Game for the Mariners and how special that experience that was. 


Well, after Felix struck out the final Tampa Bay Rays batter of the game, he struck a familiar pose that is now oft imitated around Seattle, and the world really.

Striking that pose is being called "Felixing", and it's catching on.  It's even been noted that, as a result of Felixing one can "LET THE WILD RUMPUS BEGIN"


If you have any doubt this is catching on, just Google Felixing and check out the results.

Seriously, this trend is so cool even my man Eddie Vedder was seen Felixing at a M's game this week.


The mania did not evade our home either.


And, you think this trend is catching on now, just imaging what would happen if The King throws another Perfect Game tonight against the struggling Cleveland Indians!  That's right, he takes the mound at home, in Seattle on Tuesday night seeking to guide the Mariners to their 7th straight win.

I've got a good feeling about this one.

And if any of the above happens, you can sure bet that there will be a whole lot of Felixing going on.

Happy Felix Day! readers.

I still want to see a picture of the whole bulllpen Felixing. I absolutely LOVE that one with Hernandez and Max "Let the wild rumpus begin!"

I'm still trying to get my Tebowing down so Felix will have to wait. Unless of course, he throws another one tonight! My guess is the first batter he faces gets a hit. Just a hunch.

Awesome! Happy Felix day for you. I love that movie/book, more so the book, but the movie was ok. :)

@Daniel - love that too! This run has been so much fun. I think the youngness factor of the team makes it even more special.

@Teri - Yes, it is.

@Canadian Dad - Probably not with Felix. He is just killing it right now. So darn good.

@Monkey - Yeah, the movie wasn't that great, but the book is terrific.

Growing up I was a huge Mariners fan.
