Coaching has plenty of ups and downs, but none like the ones 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh experienced on Friday.
Harbaugh was among a handful of people who got a preview ride on Superman Ultimate Flight at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom.
“I really wouldn’t compare it to any other roller coaster ride I’ve ever been on,” Harbaugh said, per Jessica A. York of the Vallejo Times-Herald.
“One time, I had a chance to go up in an F-16 with the Blue Angels for a ride-along,” Harbaugh said. “It compares more to that than it does a roller coaster ride. It gets you right from the beginning, there’s no doubt about that.”
We’re not sufficiently diabolical to believe he’s not telling the truth about that.
And while now is the time for head coaches to be relaxing in advance of the upcoming seven-month grind of a season, this could be the best way to prepare for a season of very high expectations.
“It’s not for the faint of heart,” Harbaugh said of the ride.
Come December, he could be saying the same thing about dealing with Randy Moss.
