Colin Kaepernick’s parents stand next to a statue of their son getting a wedgie

(XAM Sports)

As Deadspin said, that's an extremely satisfactory headline. The picture you see here is of Rick and Teresa Kaepernick, the adoptive parents of San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, standing in front of a statue at the Pregame Tailgate Extreme Fanzone Sponsored By State Farm near the Georgia Dome.

And if you ever wondered why your mom told you to always wear clean underwear...

The statue shows a very large replica of a Falcons player giving Kaepernick a wedgie. You can also see that Mom is trying to comfort her replica son through the experience. We'll just have to see if Kaepernick gets a figurative wedgie in today's NFC Championship game against the Atlanta Falcons. Last Saturday, Kaeperick gave the entire city of Green Bay a major wedgie by setting an NFL record for rushing yards by a quarterback in a single game with 181, as the 49ers demolished the Packers, 45-31.

The Kaepernicks are to be commended for their good humor in this case. They also know how to stand up for their son when hack writers go after him for his tattoos -- which, as you can see, are NOT on the arms of the replica Kaepernick.
