John Harbaugh Calls All-Harbaugh Super Bowl "Great moment for our country"

The next two weeks are going to be insufferable. People have been waiting years for Jim and John Harbaugh to meet in a Super Bowl so they could call it the “HarBowl.” That, combined with the incessant Ray Lewis coverage … woof. Baltimore coach John Harbaugh got an early jump on the competition for most ridiculous storyline when he spoke with Peter King following Baltimore’s AFC Championship win. From Sports Illustrated:

“I can’t even get my arms around it. My dad said something to me — my mom’s and dad’s parents are immigrants, salt-of-the-earth people. They treasure America; it’s meant everything to them, being here. I hope people can see what an incredible moment this is for our country. This is America, how hard work can get you to a moment like this. This is the greatness of America.”

Now, before anyone gets bent out of shape, I understand what Harbaugh is trying to say – You can come to America, work hard, have gifted children and they will eventually coach against each other in a Super Bowl. All you have to do is check the box on your paperwork at Ellis Island. It’s that easy. I’m just glad that someone was finally able to make the Super Bowl about ‘Merica. Keep your laws off our HarBodies! [SI via Business Insider]
