John Harbaugh pranked parents’ conference call (Video)
Jack and Jackie Harbaugh held a conference call on Thursday to speak with the media about their sons coaching against each other in the Super Bowl. The call was going fine and dandy until “John from Baltimore” jumped on the line.
“Question from Baltimore – Is it true that both of you like Jim better than John?” the person asked.
There was silence on the other end. After a few seconds, daughter Joanie, who was also on the call, identified John as the prankster.
“Is that John Harbaugh?” Jack asked, figuring out what was going on.
“That was mean, John, mom was ready to answer that question,” said Joanie.
“Mom was ready to come right through this phone,” Jack said. “I’m so happy that Joanie recognized your voice!”
There was a bunch of laughter and John jumped off the call after that, but the whole moment was pretty funny. It’s pretty clear who of the two brothers is the joker. John is much more light-hearted, while Jim doesn’t mess around. Both attitudes seem to have served the coaches well during their careers.
