Who would’ve known? The Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers, two NFL teams who throughout the season made a living through their grinding defensive schemes are now both going to represent their respective conferences in this year’s Super Bowl due to the teams’ late offensive surge.
Led by two head coaches who happen to be brothers, John Harbaugh (Ravens) and Jim Harbaugh (49ers), this season’s Super Bowl will not only be a huge game for both men, but it will also be considered a once in a lifetime family affair.
Both the Ravens and the 49ers have managed to rise to the occasion and beat their opponents, each mirroring the personality of their head coaches. The grit, the anger, and the pure determination from both brothers will be on display one last time come the Super Bowl and regardless of the outcome, although it would be difficult to swallow for one man, it would still be considered a special night for the Harbaugh brothers.
How many times can you say that you witnessed two real brothers, who each happen to be the head coach of their teams, battle for the Vince Lombardi trophy? When John Harbaugh was asked what he thought about playing his brother in the Super Bowl, John expressed how anything is possible in America.
“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.”
This is one Super Bowl you don’t want to miss.
