If the Harbaugh brothers weren’t such fierce competitors, they would not have been coaching against one another last Sunday. It has been nearly five full days since the Baltimore Ravens defeated the San Francisco 49ers in the Super Bowl, but fierce competitors hate losing. That would explain why Jim Harbaugh has still yet to speak to John Harbaugh. During an appearance on “The Late Show with David Letterman” on Thursday night, John Harbaugh was asked if he had been in contact with his brother since beating him last Sunday. “I have not,” Harbaugh said with a smile. “We have not had a conversation since. We will. Soon.” He’s not joking. Anyone who has watched Jim Harbaugh coach should not be surprised. People who throw fits like this don’t enjoy losing, and they probably have no interest in hearing “you’ll get ‘em next time” from their older brother. “When will you talk to your brother?” Letterman asked later in the interview. “I’m hoping sometime, you know, soon,” Harbaugh replied. “We actually have meetings coming up, we have a combine in two weeks. Anybody who has a brother knows that you don’t console your brother. It doesn’t work.” If John avoids a punch in the face from Jim the first time they see each other face-to-face, he’ll probably consider it a another victory.
