I realize it's been a while since I last blogged.  For that, I apologize.  It is inexcusable and unforgivable.

With that half hearted and disingenuous admission behind me, I offer you the latest online phenomenon.

Perhaps you've been witness to the art of "planking".  The act of laying face down on the ground, on a car, on an escalator, whatever, and having someone snap your photo.  Then posting that photo on some social media site, like Twitter or Facebook.  It's downright silliness, and while I love it, many don't appreciate the humor behind it.

Still, there's no denying the recent popularity of planking, and its social spinoff sisters, "Owling", "Horsemanning", etc.

But I didn't want to jump on someone else's bandwagon, I decided to start my own phenomenon.  And so I hereby introduce you to....


Yes, as in KARE 11.  It's something anybody can do.  It resembles the signal a referee gives on a touchdown, except the raised arms are straighter.  It is 2 ones, forming a majestic 11.

So jump on board won't you?  Submit photos of yourself or your kids "Elevening" to the KARE 11 Facebook page and I will give the best examples airtime on our weekend sportscasts. 

The photos will also be featured in an "Elevening" photo gallery on

Enjoy, have fun with it, and start "Elevening!"
