San Francisco 49ers All-Pro tight end George Kittle is one odd duckling. We knew this long before the game’s best tight end earned a trip to Super Bowl LIV.

Now that Kittle and his upstart 49ers are in the limelight ahead of their huge matchup with the Kansas City Chiefs, we’re starting to learn a bit more about him.

That apparently includes Kittle throwing up and head-butting walls before every single game. This is no joke, and it’s absolutely glorious.

It sure the heck seems like the NFL has found a replacement in that of Rob Gronkowski 2.0.

Kittle noted that it makes him feel 100% better to throw up ahead of games. We’re just glad that the record-breaking tight end decides to put his helmet on before going out there and head-butting walls. That’s always a smart decision.
