One of the more hilarious weird things that happened last year was a handshake-sparked beef between San Francisco Giants head coach Jim Harbaugh and Detroit Lions DUI overseer Jim Schwartz. The whole thing stemmed from the fact that the former was far too enthusiastic following a big win for the latter’s comfort, and so, because of that, they wound up having a weak old man confrontation after the game. It was a nothing, really, but it still predictably got blown out of proportion.
This week, with the Niners and Lions slated to meet on Sunday night, all eyes were on how Harbaugh and Schwartz would greet one another. Unsurprisingly, it was totally and completely anticlimactic.
It’s almost as if this whole thing was an inconsequential non-issue blown up by the media so that they would have something to talk about.
