Jimmy Garoppolo is growing a beard, and has the Sharks attention

New, comments

We’ll see if he can get it up to mine or Brady’s level.

We officially have our biggest development of the San Francisco 49ers offseason workout program. Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo reported to the facility with a new beard.

He apparently just decided to let it start happening, and now it’s gone well beyond the 5 o’clock shadow stage. It’s not quite to the level of myself or James Brady, but he’s gotta start somewhere. After all, the journey of 1,000 miles begins with a single step.

Garoppolo also mentioned he was hoping to get out to a San Jose Sharks game soon, and that coupled with the beard comment brought Sharks defenseman Brent Burns out of the woodwork! Sharks media relations manager Ben Guerrero connected Jimmy G with Burns, and the Sharks defenseman was ready to get him to a game and bring out some beard oil!

The Sharks face off against my Vegas Golden Knights in the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. The puck drops for Game 1 later this week, with the schedule still to be determined. I wonder if Jimmy G will stick with the beard for the long haul, or if he’ll just grow a playoff beard in support of the Sharks?
