  Owens won't attend Hall of Fame induction ceremony Retired NFL receiver Terrell Owens will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame this summer, but he won't be there for the ceremony. Owens released a statement Thursday, obtained by ESPN's Adam Schefter, in which he declined his invitation to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. 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.

The New Jersey Devils winger was recognized by hockey fans for his excellent Twitter game in the NHL Fan Choice Awards, a just-for-fun social media campaign that handed out awards for some of the best hockey player highlights away from the rink.

The award for top tweet — “To the player who dug deep and gave 110 per cent to this post” — as voted by fans, went to Hall’s hilarious shoutout to Selena Gomez after the singer was spotted wearing his No. 9 Devils sweater while out with Justin Bieber.
