Never one to be dramatic or controversial, Terrell Owens revealed a while back that wouldn’t participate in the Pro Football Hall of Fame induction in Canton next month.
Instead, he’ll do it his own way, announcing today that he’ll give a speech at UT-Chattanooga, his alma mater, on August 4th:

I didn’t get the 3:17 p.m. thing when I read this, but “Coach Culler” apparently has an explanation here:
4 when you round it off to CP time. If he says 4, people will show up at 4:17. By saying 3:17 is a classic move used in the black community to start at promptly 4pm. pic.twitter.com/rhDSrFIGJ1

Owens got into the Hall of Fame on his third attempt this year. He previously said that he didn’t really care if he got in or not.
“While I am incredibly appreciative of this opportunity, I have made the decision to publicly decline my invitation to attend the induction ceremony in Canton. I have already shared this information with the Hall. After visiting Canton earlier this year, I came to the realization that I wish to celebrate what will be one of the most memorable days of my life, elsewhere. At a later date, I will announce where and when I will celebrate my induction.”
