Jim Harbaugh visits his friend Willie Mays

What do you do the day after the Super Bowl in San Francisco if you are Jim Harbaugh? Go to Willie Mays' house to hang out, of course.

The Michigan coach, who spent plenty of time in Northern California with the Niners and Stanford, checked in on the "Say Hey Kid" on Monday because Harbaugh is friends with every famous person on the planet, it seems.

Harbaugh does nothing halfway, so he showed up in a Mays jersey and snapped a picture with a bat in his hands. The best part of the pic isn't Harbaugh dressed up, it's the fact that Willie Mays is such a baller that he has a leather recliner with "Say Hey" stitched into the back of it, so you know whose chair that is.

I actually caught this story before I saw the thread, so I wasn't shocked, but then when I read the story, I wasn't shocked then - this is yet another "only Jim Harbaugh" moment and it is awesome like the rest of them. You begin to ask yourself - where has Harbaugh not been? Who doesn't he know? It makes you enjoy the fact that he's our football coach that much more really.

Awesome.  Coach is always finding cool photo ops with famous friends.  its not just to promote Michigan, but its to promote the famous friend as well.  In this case, recognizing Willie Mays for his greatness to the new generation of twitter followers.

Willie Mays imho was the greatest all around baseball player ever.   Very cool that Coach goes to see his friend the Say Hey Kid on his trip to the Bay area.
