John Harbaugh is now 2-0 against his little brother Jim, and that record now includes a victory in the Super Bowl.

Yes, the “Harbowl” is now concluded and we can stop obsessing about the matchup between two teams coached by brothers.

But first, here is what John told Jim following the game during their handshake at midfield:

I told him I loved him and he said congratulations. He’s the best coach in football, there’s no question in my mind.

Harbaugh was also asked if it was tough to celebrate knowing his brother is in pain:

“It’s tough, he said. “It’s very tough. It’s a lot tougher than I thought it was going to be.  It’s very painful.”

The Ravens defeated the 49ers 34-31 in Super Bowl XLVII on Sunday night, earning their second Super Bowl victory in franchise history.

      Raven fan, I assume? Look, a team doesn’t win because of the refs. They win because they are better than their opponents. Plain and simple.
