Jim Harbaugh sits in Wrigley bleachers for World Series Game 5

You saw Jim Harbaugh in the Wrigley Field bleachers for Game 5 of the World Series on Sunday night, right?

The Michigan football coach, along with his parents and wife, attended the potential elimination game between the Cleveland Indians and Chicago Cubs, and, naturally, the FOX cameras found the unofficial most interesting man in college football in his left field bleacher seat.

In true Harbaugh fashion, the coach even brought his glove to the game. He looked a little bit like Steve Bartman, too.

“We had a great time,” Harbaugh said in his weekly press conference Monday. “It was a tremendous atmosphere. It was one of those signature moments being at a World Series game with my dad, my mom and my wife Sarah; it was outstanding.”

It helped that Harbaugh’s team, the Cubs, won to stave off elimination and force a Game 6 on Tuesday in Cleveland.

“Baseball’s almost too fun, you know?” Harbaugh said. “Like ice cream, you couldn’t eat it every day.”
