PHOTO: Fredy Montero And Other Local Celebrities Strike Felixing Poses

Sounders FC star Fredy Montero paid tribute to Felix Hernandez on Saturday night after scoring a goal in the second half in a match against the Vancouver Whitecaps at CenturyLink Field.

Montero emulated Hernandez's post-perfect game celebration by pointing his two arms into the sky and looking up with one leg off the ground.

Dubbed "Felixing" by the Seattle Mariners organization, the trend has inspired fans and other local celebrities to photograph themselves striking the pose to pay tribute to Hernandez's special feat. See some photos after the jump of "Felixing."
