Football coaches often send strong messages with their words. On Sunday, 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh sent a powerful message by saying nothing at all.
As Cam Inman of BayAreaNewsGroup.com explains it, a “shaggy fan” wearing shorts and shoes ran onto the field at Candlestick Park as the team finished practice on Sunday. The “shaggy fan” approached Harbaugh.
And the “shaggy fan” stopped in his tracks after making eye contact with Harbaugh. Eventually, the “shaggy fan” ran away from Harbaugh, into the comforting arms of police officers.
“He called me ‘Coach,’ ‘Coach-something,’” Harbaugh said. “I didn’t say anything. I’m glad he was clothed, glad he wasn’t naked.”
“Him and Harbaugh kind of had a moment,” Joe Staley added. “They locked eyes, and Harbaugh made him withdraw with his Chuck Norris eyes.”
Hell, even Chuck Norris would run away from Harbaugh.
