This new national holiday is pretty tight
Ladies and Gentlemern, it’s official: October 27th is national tight end day. The dream began in 2018 when San Francisco 49ers tight end Garrett Celek caught a touchdown pass from quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo in Week 2 against the Detroit Lions.

Following Celek’s touchdown, Jimmy G celebrated effusively with the tight end. That celebration was the start of it all … and a little over a year later, the dream became a reality.
To all the Tight Ends out there, this day is for you.

The importance of tight ends will be highlighted today, recognizing a typically overlooked group of players.
The trend of honoring tight ends began with the 49ers … guess their idea was pretty golden.
Mark your calendars…

The 2019 49er Garoppolypse wouldn’t be happening without a key piece of the offense: tight end George Kittle.
Oh hey there 👋
