The Harbaugh brothers are competitive even on Father’s Day
John Harbaugh and Jim Harbaugh may be brothers, but when it comes to competition, they hold nothing back. Jim Harbaugh lost the last matchup they had, which was the historic Super Bowl that pitted the head coaching brothers against each other (John’s Ravens defeated Jim’s 49ers 34-31). So Jim will of course tried his hardest to win the next competition the brothers have: making the first phone call to dad on Father’s Day.

Even when it comes to making phone calls on Father’s Day, John Harbaugh and Jim Harbaugh compete.
“There’s always a race, birthdays, there’s always a competition with who gets the call first,’’ John said Thursday following Ravens’ minicamp. “Believe me, my dad does keep track. I got East coast time, there should be an advantage there.’’
John Harbaugh later put everything in perspective when it comes to Father’s Day and the importance of it.
“I hope all the fathers out there cherish every second of it (Father’s Day),’’ Harbaugh said. ”Seems to me a little bit like a player. You better not take it for granted. We only get our kids for a short span in this life, and there’s nothing more precious or valuable than our kids. That relationship means everything to me.’’
