The San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks have an intense and bitter NFC West rivalry. 49ers tight end George Kittle has become accustomed to the rivalry, particularly the chorus of boos from the Seattle fans anytime he plays against them on the road. In fact, Kittle thrives off of the Seahawks’ fans ‘passion of hatred.’

That’s awesome. Kittle called it a “storm of energy” that rains down on he and the 49ers anytime they play the Seahawks in Seattle. That’s an apt characterization, considering the Seahawks fans once caused an earthquake.
