Mike Shumann gives 49ers coach 'HarBowl' jersey

The Super Bowl will not be the first time Jim and John Harbaugh will be facing off in an NFL game. Back in 2011, the brothers squared off in a Thanksgiving Day game in Baltimore. It was Jim's first season as head coach of the 49ers and the first time two brothers had ever been coaching teams playing each other in an NFL game.

In anticipation of the game, a company made a special HarBowl jersey -- half Baltimore Ravens and half San Francisco 49ers. I was sent one and had heard that the brothers were each supposed to get one too but it had never happened. So I brought the jersey to one of Jim's weekly press conferences and presented it to him afterwards. He thought I was just showing him the jersey, so when I said "take it, it's yours," he thanked me and was beaming like a little kid.
