Party at the Harbaughs — not!
"We share our misery with no one but ourselves," Jack Harbaugh, 77, told the San Francisco Chronicle, saying he and his wife Jackie will be alone with their TV in the basement of their Mequon, Wis., home on Sunday, watching sons John and Jim coach in the NFL's conference-championship games.
It was certainly misery a year ago, when John's Ravens and Jim's 49ers both lost at this juncture. But the Harbaughs hit the trifecta last Saturday, when both sons — and son-in-law Tom Crean, basketball coach of No. 5 Indiana — all won their games.
"My parents are in their 70s," Jim Harbaugh told the Chronicle. "That's a lot of excitement, that's a lot of action. That's like going back-to-back-to-back, like three '24' episodes in a row."
