MT: Jim Harbaugh’s Bucket List

Posted by Taylor Price on June 6, 2013 – 11:06 AM

He just might be the closest thing to the world’s most interesting man.

Jim Harbaugh’s off the field activities as the San Francisco 49ers coach are unique to say the least. It speaks to his wide-ranging interests when he’s not working with professional football players.

On Tuesday, Harbaugh told Cam Inman of the San Jose Mercury News that his bucket list included the wish of purchasing a motor home.

Harbaugh’s only driven an RV once, but would like to own one at some point.

After the 49ers coach made a cameo on Judge Judy this week, Inman noted the numerous activities Harbaugh has taken part in during his tenure in San Francisco:

– Drive the pace car in last month’s Indy 500. (Harbaugh has been a co-owner of a racing team since his late-1990s playing days with the Indianapolis Colts.)

– Meet baseball idol Willie Mays. He did so last year when Mays attended a 49ers practice (and later hosted Harbaugh and his father Jack at his house to watch a Giants game).

– Play in the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. He’s done that the past two years, even placing a respectable 13th this year with partner Jason Day.

– Receive inspirational speeches from military heroes, including Gen. Martin Dempsey (Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman), Marine Corps Col. Jim Minnick, four-star Army Gen. Bob Cone, Sgt. Dontae Skywalker (at Arlington National Cemetary) and an anonymous Navy SEAL.

– Moonlight as a team manager at an Indiana University men’s basketball game, which he did last year for Hoosiers coach (and brother-in-law) Tom Crean.

– Have his silhouette depicted on a T-shirt. OK, he never publicly opined for this, but Nike has come out with a $28 shirt featuring a side view of Harbaugh in a black top and khaki pants.

– Phone into John Madden’s daily radio segment, which he did in January for advice on being a first-time Super Bowl coach.

More 49ers headlines can be found in today’s Morning Tailgate.

    There is a local sports radio in SAV GA area they were talking about how the JAGs might move to London ya right anyway he mention the game that is going to be played there and that it sold out in 45 minutes no mention of the other team so I called and mentioned that the biggest reason was that the 49er were playing, now am sure the JAGS have fans there also I do belive there well be a sea of RED AND GOLD . I was really hoping the team was going to play in Atlanta or Jacksonville that would be my bucket list …

    Sash Roxx, your post shows ur EXTREME IGNORANCE. Ya the SF Giants have won 2 out of the last 3, but it took them 55 years in California to finally win 1 !! And the most they’ve won so far is ONLY 2. The Niners won 5 Super Bowls in 13 years. There is no comparison. SF Giants fans r the most delusional fan base there is. 49ers til death !
