Jimmy Garoppolo is on hand to open the locker room door for Sharks game

That happened quickly!

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
