It is one of the biggest moments in any athlete's life, enshrinement into the hall of fame. A moment etched in time for all the hard work and sacrifice you gave to the sport that you love.

This August, the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio will welcome eight new members into its hallowed hall. The speeches should be very entertaining with the likes of Ray Lewis, and Randy Moss as part of the class of 2018.

Perhaps the most entertaining speech could come from another wide receiver in this years class, Terrell Owens. It could be so interesting to listen too, fans will need to get their popcorn ready.

Well hold on just a minute. The class of 2018 will have eight members inducted, but only seven will be represented in Canton. Owens has decided to not attend the ceremony.

The move is unprecedented, but if there is anyone who would actually go through with it, Owens would certainly be at or near the top of that list.

There is no denying that Owens can catch the football. On the other hand, there is no denying that Owens is his own person. A decision like this is typical of the flamboyant wide receiver.

You have to wonder what is going through Owens' head in regards to this decision. Well only he knows exactly why this decision has been made. It has certainly left everyone else scratching their heads.

Perhaps Owens couldn't find someone to introduce him on enshrinement night. Considering the way he treated some of his quarterbacks during his career, it is possible that nobody wants to introduce him into the Hall of Fame.

What makes this story even harder to believe is all the effort Owens made to get himself elected into the Hall of Fame. Once again, Owens is doing something to draw attention to himself. That isn't always a good thing.

Once again, Owens just doesn't get. He is known for catching the football, but Owens clearly dropped the ball on this one.
