Mama & Papa Harbaugh: Both sons are super

  • Brothers Jim and John Harbaugh are head coaches on opposing Super Bowl teams
  • Mom and Dad say they are proud no matter who wins

Center stage at the Super Bowl was taken over Wednesday by Jack and Jackie Harbaugh, the proud parents of San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh and Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh, whose teams will face off Sunday at Super Bowl XLVII

The couple sat down for a press conference to answer some really tough questions:

  • Which team colors will they be wearing? Neither.
  • Where will they be sitting during the game? Not sure yet.
  • Are they looking forward to a possible rematch in next year's Super Bowl? "One game at a time," Mama Harbaugh said.
  • Which son will they visit first after the game? The loser.

HLN sports anchor Carlos Diaz says, "The event felt like story time with the Harbaughs." Mr. Harbaugh even wondered aloud if he was talking too much. 

In the end, Mom and Dad both said that they are proud parents first, and football parents a close second.
