Typically, players don commemorative hats and shirts following a major playoff victory.
But George Kittle made a different fashion selection following the San Francisco 49ers’ 37-20 defeat of the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday.
Kittle appeared at his postgame media availability wearing an autographed t-shirt featuring a photo of a shirtless Jimmy Garoppolo. And the running back’s explanation behind the wardrobe choice is pretty hilarious.
“So, you remember when Jimmy had a t-shirt of my face in his locker and he told everybody I sent it to him? I got this in my locker the same day, I just didn’t show you guys ’cause I was saving it for a special occasion,” Kittle said, via 95.7 The Game. “… He even signed it.”
