As far as Ravens coach John Harbaugh is concerned, Boogergate is over.
Harbaugh started his conference call with Cleveland-area reporters Wednesday by saying, “For the record, my brother has never eaten a booger.” That matches what his brother, ex-49ers and current Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh, said earlier this week.
“There was no booger eating,” Jim Harbaugh said.
Case closed, then.
During Michigan’s game last Saturday, TV cameras caught Jim Harbaugh rubbing his nose. What happened next is open to interpretation, and some interpreted it as Harbaugh sampling something from his nostril. That interpretation has now been shot down, on the record, by two Harbaughs.
Later in Wednesday’s conference call, John Harbaugh said that he also has never eaten a booger. We hope you’ll rest easier knowing that.
