(via usatoday.com) So this exists. Hard-nosed 49ers head coach – and former NFL QB – Jim Harbaugh once appeared on an episode of Saved By The Bell: The New Class.  As Screech’s cousin.  Take a minute to let that sink in. The video evidence is below, with Harbaugh paying a visit to The Max to have lunch with his favorite cousin Screech. He’s also conveniently there to provide counsel to a troubled teen who’s considering quitting football after pulling a DeSean Jackson and prematurely celebrating a touchdown. And even though everyone knows that The New Class was a wildly inferior installation in the Saved By The Bell cannon, this is still a tremendous find. At the time (somewhere between 1994-97), Harbaugh was quarterbacking the Indianapolis Colts, and probably wasn’t the most instantly recognizable athlete in the country. So despite the piped-in cheering when Jim enters, the script makes sure the audience knows exactly who it is we’re looking at. You know, since they’ve never mentioned this supposedly close relative of Screech even once in the history of the show. But because Dustin Diamond so obviously looks like the lost Harbaugh brother, it’s totally believable. VIDEO AFTER THE JUMP If you’re so inclined, skip ahead to around 18:50 for Harbaugh’s second scene … another tour de force of comedic acting. [H/T TheBigLead]
