“We both desperately want to win. But we understand the other side of that.” Jim Harbaugh, coach of the San Francisco 49ers
Super Bowl 47 takes place in New Orleans tomorrow and for the first time in history, the opposing coaches are brothers. John Harbaugh, coach of the Baltimore Ravens, will face younger brother Jim Harbaugh, coach of the San Francisco 49ers. Sibling rivalry is not a new concept. In fact, CNN compiled a list of some of the biggest brother rivalries throughout history.
No matter the outcome, it might make family Thanksgivings a bit awkward for awhile.
Will you be watching? Which team are you rooting for?
