Listened to the latest Harbaugh podcast "Attack Each Day" and the special guest was Dick Vitale. Towards the end of his segment, Jim asked him if he would be an honorary caption. Vitale agreed. (Nothing official, but it's now on record.)
Regardless of anyone's opinion of Vitale as a color analyst (he aggravates many, including myself sometimes) he is a hall of fame broadcaster, and, I beleive, a great humanitartion. He has spearheaded the Jimmy V Foundation's fundraising efforts to defeat childhood cancer. He told coach Harbaugh (who is going to be honored at this year's foundation dinner May 1) that this year the foundation will give "at least" $250,000 in Chad Carr's name to fight DIPG.
I, for one, think he is a great choice for honorary captin.
