The San Jose Sharks are back home to face the Vegas Golden Knights in Game 3 of their second round series, and San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is on hand. And he’ll be handling the honorary locker room door opening!
A couple weeks ago, head coach Kyle Shanahan was on hand to open the door before their series-closing victor over the Anaheim Ducks. Garoppolo is on hand as the Sharks look to take a 2-1 lead over the Knights. This is happening a week after Garoppolo first mentioned an interest in going to a Sharks game. Sharks defenseman Brent Burns was quick to respond.
And so, Jimmy G’s on hand for tonight’s game. I won’t hold it entirely against him while I’m busy rooting for the Golden Knights. Speaking of which, I’m headed out to Las Vegas for Game 5 later this week. That will be during the team’s rookie minicamp, so hopefully nothing bad comes of my trip to Las Vegas!
Fooch’s update: A few other 49ers are on hand
