Terrell Owens Making a Much-Anticipated Return to San Francisco in April

Mar 25, 2015 at 12:10 PM--


Terrell Owens had a great run with the San Francisco 49ers, becoming an All-Pro wide receiver and providing the fans with an indelible memory as he caught the game-winning touchdown in a thrilling Wild Card playoff victory over the Packers in 1999. Unfortunately, the relationship fizzled and Owens and the Niners parted ways after the 2003 season. Owens continued his prolific career with stops in Philadelphia, Dallas, Buffalo, and Cincinnati, but his eight seasons in the Bay Area cemented his legacy and his place in 49ers history.

After all these years, Owens is back in San Francisco and ready to open up about his experiences. His appearance is part of an event series put on by the Thuzio Executive Club (TEC), which is beginning operations in San Francisco with this April 20 dinner and Q&A moderated by Larry Krueger. TEC has been holding events such as this in New York, Philadelphia and Chicago, and already has plans in place for their second San Francisco event on May 18 with Tim Hardaway and Mitch Richmond, celebrating the legend of Run TMC.

TEC is a platform that provides members and their guests access to memorable business events featuring pro athletes, coaches and sports personalities. At the same time, Thuzio Executive Club gives these sports celebrities the chance to tell their stories to an audience of business people as opposed to the usual sports fan crowd.

The upcoming event in San Francisco featuring the controversial and always entertaining Owens at Morton's Steakhouse will feature a Q&A session plus cocktails and dinner. Thuzio Executive Club members and their guests can ask the loquacious Owens about anything from "The Catch II," to his gallant performance in Super Bowl XXXIX for the Eagles, to how his behavior on and off the field effected NFL teams' interest in signing him.

Last November, Owens appeared at a similar event for Thuzio Executive Club in Philadelphia, another of his former NFL homes. Other past Thuzio Executive Club events have featured the likes of Lawrence Taylor, Roger Clemens, Brian Leetch, Dick Vermeil, Terrell Davis, Allan Houston, CC Sabathia, Jeremy Roenick, Joe Theismann and Christian Laettner.

"Members of Thuzio Executive Club and their guests can expect the most interesting business evening of the year, each time," said Mark Gerson, who is co-founder and chairman of the Gerson Lehrman Group and co-founded Thuzio in 2012 with former New York Giants running back Tiki Barber. "The combination of stories that yield enduring lessons directly from the top talent in the sport, the congregation of business leaders at each event, and the ambiance create an experience that our members and their guests remember for months that follow."

Thuzio Executive Club appears to be thriving as it currently plans on expanding to Atlanta, Boston, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles and Washington D.C. But first they'll be looking to make a great impression on the people in San Francisco with events featuring prominent Bay Area sports figures Terrell Owens, Tim Hardaway, and Mitch Richmond.

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Divisional Round playoff contest against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California.

49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo says Super Bowl return 'still up in the air'

The San Francisco 49ers have officially ruled out quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo for this weekend's NFC Championship Game against the Philadelphia Eagles. That wasn't unexpected. The chances of the former starter suiting up for Sunday's playoff bout, backing up rookie Brock Purdy, were slim. "Yeah, it's just been an outside chance the whole time, and that was still an outside chance," head coach Kyle Shanahan said Thursday, before that outside chance turned into no chance. The 49ers never placed Garoppolo on injured reserve, leaving the door open for a playoff return. However, we are now down to just one more game as a possibility—Super



49ers' Kyle Shanahan still not optimistic about Jimmy Garoppolo's return this week

It seems it's time for your weekly Jimmy Garoppolo update. The San Francisco 49ers quarterback has been sidelined since suffering a broken foot on December 4. However, there is a slight chance Garoppolo could return and suit up for the playoffs, likely serving as rookie Brock Purdy's backup. That probably won't be this week, though. Last week, head coach Kyle Shanahan stated that the quarterback probably wouldn't be ready for an NFC Championship Game appearance. However, Garoppolo suiting up for the Super Bowl, should the 49ers make it that far, might be more likely. On Monday, Shanahan was once again asked about Garoppolo's recovery and
