When the San Francisco 49ers meet up with the Baltimore Ravens at Super Bowl XLVII this Sunday, something unusual will happen: two brothers will face off as head coaches for the first time in Super Bowl history.
In fact, Jim Harbaugh of the 49ers and John Harbaugh of the Ravens are the first brothers to be head coaches in the NFL, period. You kinda have to feel a little bit sorry for their parents. (Although I guess not too much: I mean, both kids are doing pretty well for themselves.)
There’s just nothing like a brother vs. brother match-up to ratchet up the human interest factor in sports. And while everybody’s talking about the “Harbowl,” the Harbaugh brothers certainly aren’t the first famous set of siblings in sports.
From the DiMaggio brothers of baseball to the Lamoureux twins of women’s hockey, see how some other famous (and not-so-famous) siblings fare when they play together–and against each other.
Enjoy your Harbowl! And pass the nachos, will you?
