The whole sports world is social distancing right now, but with the NFL season still scheduled to begin on time in September, teams have to find ways to stay connected and continue their offseason programs.

One of the ways teams do this is through Zoom video calls. And for anyone who has never used Zoom before, one of the features allows you to upload a custom background, as if you were standing in front of a green screen.

George Kittle, known as a bit of a jokester, has been using various pictures of Jimmy Garoppolo as his background. He's had various old funny ones, and even mixed in some of his high school prom pictures.

While I'm sure most people would rather not revisit their middle school days in front of all their work colleagues, the 49ers offense is a tight-knit unit, and Jimmy G is most likely taking it in stride and having a good laugh about it.

It has to be a good sign of team chemistry that the guys are willing to joke around with each other like that, especially for a team that is looking to turn a 2019 Super Bowl loss into a 2020 Super Bowl win.
