Seahawks vs. 49ers

Jim Harbaugh is arrogant, runs up scores, gives hyper-annoying locker room speeches, and gloats after games. He probably eyefucks attractive waitresses and, when not comped drinks, says, "Don't you know who I am?" And where has this attitude landed the San Francisco 49ers head coach? First place in the NFC West, with an odds-on shot to claim league Coach of the Year honors in his first year on the job. A grizzled NBA beat reporter once told me that, in order to achieve greatness in pro sports, you have to be a little bit of an asshole. And Harbaugh is a whole lot of an asshole. When Seahawks coach Pete Carroll was at USC and Harbaugh was at Stanford, Harbaugh instructed his Cardinal to keep pouring it on well after the game was decided, which irked Carroll to the point where he asked Harbaugh, "What's your deal?" Our suggestion to Carroll: Next time, knee him in the fucking nuts. Harbaugh's had it coming to him for, like, forever. MIKE SEELY
