Seriously though, some of the quotes I've heard attributed to him and his family (as you pointed out) seem pretty damning. Granted, I don't know their full context, I was just hearing folks talk about it on the radio, but if they're true it's hard to imagine that he wasn't involved in this and not a victim.

One half a Harg-bowl -- not sure how I feel.

I gotta say that Harbaugh is looking like a genius for going with Kaepernick since mid-season.

Kaepernick amazes me. Not his play, but the fact that he has stereoscopic vision with eyes set that close together.

Crap, crap,crap...it's an all-chin bowl....

The pimping of the Lewis dance will be nauseating over the next two weeks. I put the over/under on the number of times we see it over the next 2 weeks at 600.

This is the first time I can remember a SB where I really really wish both teams would loose.

I have always been annoyed at helmet to helmet hits seemingly always going against the defender since it always seem to be the ball carrier ducking into the hit causing the helmet to helmet hit in the first place. The Pollard/Ridley hit shows this clearly. Ridley ducks into the hit driving his helmet into Pollard's, luckily no penalty was called.
We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.

That wasn't a questionable hit. Helmet to helmet hits aren't illegal unless the player is defenseless, and Ridley was not only not defenseless but the instigator. There's no possible way they could enforce helmet to helmet hits against runners who are trying to make the opponent miss and who often lower their heads themselves.

The rule annoys me too because defenders getting blocked can be vulnerable, but by rule, I don't think defenders are ever considered defenseless. It seems to only apply to players making a play on the ball, or the qb because they are in a vulnerable position. That shot Pitta took would have drawn a flag if a Ravens were on defense.

I'm glad that the Harbaugh family is going to enjoy the Super Bowl so much. I'm trying to find something to root for.

So far, It's that maybe Randy Moss, the new, quiet, and "grown up" Randy Moss will get the one thing that would give his career the "cherry on top".

I honestly think I'll be rooting for the niners, if only because their win will keep the worst "year" in sports from happening to Cleveland Fans. Lebron wins NBA Title, and then the Ravens win the Super Bowl? The only way it could have been worse? VMart doesn't blow out his knee, and he leads the Tigers to the World Series win.

I'm a little too far north for that. But... 1hr 15 min drive doesn't put him much further south than myself.

EDIT:
And the only Reds Fan I know has severe MS, and no license either.

Call me insensitive, but how the hell does a legally blind man cover a baseball game?
