Great interview with Coach Jimmy Harbaugh's son James Jr. in the Detroit News that I thought I would pass along here. He says some funny stuff about waking up and checking his news feeds first thing each morning to find out what his dad has done to drive people wild lately. He also critiques, to put it mildly, his Dad's sartorial choices (the article reveals that those be some Lululemon trou that Jimmy is wearing lately).
Anyway, the article tickled me, among other things because the coach is more or less my contemporary, and because I have some long Michigan roots myself, with a family that all went to UM and a dad who was the university's Director of Training. (He and Bo never saw eye to eye, as I have related here in the past.)
What made the article particularly touching for me, though, is that it describes James, Jr. coming out to his dad on the morning after the last presidential election, and how cool his dad was about it. There are some gay people in my family who have lived through hell because of what they were, including a little hell in former times in Ann Arbor.
As with several things that Jimmy has done lately, it made me proud that he is Michigan's coach.
EDIT: Not trying to invite a debate on these matters--I hope obviously--but figured that the article was going to end up cited here, and thought I might be as good as anyone to put it up.
