Jim Harbaugh won laser tag by hunting a 10-year-old
The word “losing” isn’t in Jim Harbaugh’s vocabulary, not by a long shot. If you need more proof then look no further than this story about the 49ers head coach by MLive.com, which details his unique laser tag tactics.
For instance, one of the activities at Harbaugh’s recent bachelor party (he’s been married twice) was laser tag. Everyone signed up for a name on an electronic scoresheet. He chose “Captain Comeback,” an homage to his playing days as an NFL quarterback. And from there, everyone went to work.
Everything is pretty normal so far. Not a bad nickname for laser tag. So, what’s the problem?
Harbaugh won. Because he always wins. But upon further examination of where each person’s shots came from, it became clear why he won in such a landslide.
“All his shots came against this 10-year-old kid,” laughs Eric Bakhtiari, who played for Harbaugh in college and in the NFL with the 49ers. “He just sat there, hunting this 10-year-old kid so he could win.
Harbaugh cared so much about winning that a 50-year-old man hunted and (virtually) murdered a 10-year-old child. That’s dedication.
“(He’s crazy), but in the best way possible. I mean, hey, Steve Jobs was crazy, too.”
Definitely a Michigan man.
