Photos: Gators' Lynden Trail Brings Planking to Gainesville

Gators defensive end Lynden Trail has always been an interesting follow on Twitter: He's verbose, but funny, and in the sort of way that is more harmless than, say, Florida commits who are not yet Gators. On Monday night, as Florida's baseball team foundered, Trail discovered planking as it burned up Twitter's trending topics. And then magic happened.

"Planking just got real gator nation lol"

There is so much more where that came from.

"I should be on the soccer team I score head first while im planking gooooooaaaaaalllllllllll"

There are a few more pictures of Trail planking from Monday night and Tuesday morning at his Yfrog account, and I'm sure he'll have more for Gator Nation tonight, but the concept has already completely fulfilled its potential for humor; any more and we're heading into surplus lulz. So thanks, Lynden, for that.

And before you get there: Yes, the obvious joke is that John Brantley has been planking for a while, and yes, the obvious endgame of this is to get Will Muschamp, Jeremy Foley, or Albert to plank.
