The Super Bowl is upon us and regardless of the relationships at hand, this is a business and people want to win. Siblings are no siblings professionals are competitive, and John and Jim Harbaugh are putting that competitive nature on display.
According to ESPN the two brothers may not speak much at all until after the Super Bowl. If they do speak, it will only be via text message.
“It doesn’t matter who the coach is, what relationship you have with the person on the other side,” 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh said so matter-of-factly Monday afternoon.
“Well, I think it’s a blessing and a curse,” Jim Harbaugh said Monday. “A blessing because that is my brother’s team. And, also, personally I played for the Ravens. Great respect for their organization. … The curse part would be the talk of two brothers playing in the Super Bowl and what that takes away from the players that are in the game. Every moment that you’re talking about myself or John, that’s less time that the players are going to be talked about.”
I have siblings so I can only imagine how the two men feel. I definitely agree with them though, not much room for chatter or brotherly love at this time.
