John Harbaugh crashes his parents’ conference call

The Super Bowl is still more than a week away, but Ravens coach John Harbaugh has the first score.

During a national conference call with Jack and Jackie Harbaugh (the parents of the two Super Bowl coaches, in case you haven’t heard), John snuck onto the call, identified himself as “John from Baltimore” and asked his mom a loaded question.

Is it true that both of you liked Jim better than John?” the Ravens coach asked, via the San Jose Mercury News.

His sister, Joani Crean (the wife of Indiana basketball coach Tom Crean, in case you haven’t heard) recognized his voice and ratted him out before laughter ensued.

We’d go on, but there’s still plenty of time to milk this story, and like everyone else, we intend to.

    They are playing the Harbaugh coaches family roundtable tonight on NFLN. That said, this family seems like a hoot. Really. All coaches, pop, both sons, daughter is the wife of one. This is an interesting SB to say the least with this story line. At least this is one without the mention of any obstruction of justice.

    Jim meanwhile threw his cell phone into the wall when he received a busy signal attempting the same stunt.

    John Harbaugh is great. His brother Jim, however, is a big whiny baby.

    This is a lot more fun than reading about Bill and Brady for 2 weeks.

    And what would John have done if they said yes?
