New Orleans - The most unique perspective of this year’s big show, Super Bowl XLVII will be from the parents of the opposing coaches, Jim and John Harbaugh. Jack and Jackie Harbaugh are excited about attending this year’s media drenched atmosphere and having son’s coaching on opposing sides adds to the excitement. Jim Harbaugh is the head coach of the San Francisco 49ers and his older brother, who left law school to pursue the family business – coaching, John Harbaugh, is the head coach of the Baltimore Ravens, will face off this Sunday I the Superbowl. This marks the first time brothers will coach opposition teams in Super Bowl history.
It seems during all press conferences that the sons and the parents are genuinely jovial. Jack and Jackie Harbaugh, who named all of their children’s’ names beginning with the letter “J”, both shouted the family motto “Who has it better than us?…Nobody!”
From this vantage point and unique parenting perspective, the Harbaugh parents realize that one son will win and one will lose. However, in anticipation wisely instead of spending most of the celebrating the victorious son’s win, they already realize that they will have to spend most of the time consoling the losing team’s coach. No matter the age of the child, parents are called to be a source of comfort and encouragement, which both always age appropriate. No matter the outcome of the Super Bowl, the Harbaughs win.
