Jim Harbaugh denies eating booger, Saturday or ever

seinfeldthepickquiz

No matter how hard we try to ignore once-and-future NFL coach Jim Harbaugh, we can’t. Usually, it’s his own fault.

One day before Ravens coach John Harbaugh pulled his brother’s name back into the NFL conversation by comparing Joe Flacco’s toughness to a two-dollar steak and quickly pointing out that it wasn’t one of Jim’s sayings, Jim appeared to consume something almost as tasty.

Video of the Michigan coach on the sideline at Saturday’s game against Central Michigan seemed to show Jim picking his nose and consuming the contents. (On the scale of disgusting things coaches can do while they know or should know everyone is watching, it’s hardly at the top.) On Monday, Jim Harbaugh denied that there was any harvesting or consumption of nasal material.

I have never eaten a booger in my entire life,” Harbaugh said with a laugh, via MLive.com. “That might have looked like what was happening. But I think if you rub your nose and then you bite your fingernail, that’s not eating a booger now. . . . There was no booger eating. Let me clear the air. For clarity here, for the record, I have never eaten a booger in my entire life.”

So now the record has been set straight. So now the only question is whether you’ll believe Jim Harbaugh, or your lying eyes. Yes, your lying eyes.

    “And I have never had sex with that woman, Monica Lewinsky”, stated Harbaugh.

    German national coach wins all disgusting awards with the scratch and sniff testing.

    Harbaugh is a booger. Both of them for that matter.

    Jim has every right to pick his quarterbacks. Jim also has the right and freedom to pick his own nose and eat or fling the booger – no matter what his motivation is. Jim just doesn’t have the right to pick Colin Kaepernick’s nose.

    You can pick your friends, and you can pick your nose, but you can’t pick your friends nose.

    Booger….eaten. Even if he didn’t purposely do it some boog material still found it’s way home.

    Last week your nation traveled to Seattle. How’d that work out? Do yourself and your nation a solid. Save your money, stay home and enjoy the beaches. The weather up here in New England is supposed to be cool and wet. You guys will be miserable in that weather not to mention the pain of the final score which you already know will not be going in your favor.

    I’m delighted that Harbaugh has to answer questions about this. That just made my day.

    He was searching for where he had stashed his teams and Colorado’s Depth Charts.

    Dan, Please do not discourage chippy from having his Mom bring him up. I have extended an invitation to have him come to TJ’s after the game. I would gladly meet him in Gillette if it were not for the fact that stadium security might frown on the ‘greeting’

    He was the Head Official for the SD @ KC game.

  25. ccous13 says: Sep 13, 2016 8:02 PM

    Get over it, he’ll be in AA for a very long time.

    Burkie- Any chance you ride a white Road King? If so I think we’ve met. I ride a silver/black Road Glide

    Well, at least we can put this to rest now, and I can get some much needed sleep…
