Spring training is in full swing, Team USA is contending for the World Baseball Classic title and Opening Day is less than18 days away (but who’s counting?). We’re also less than a month from another major baseball milestone -- the release of “42,” the highly anticipated film about Jackie Robinson and his struggle to break Major League Baseball’s infamous color line.
In the wake of the Baltimore Ravens’ thrilling Super Bowl win over the San Francisco 49ers in New Orleans, GuySpeed had the chance to talk with Fox and NFL Network broadcaster Brian Billick, who coached the Ravens to their first Super Bowl championship in Super Bowl XXXV twelve years ago.
Unless you have been living under a rock for the past two weeks (or just arrived from another planet), you probably know that this year’s Super Bowl not only matches up the 49ers and the Ravens, but two brothers, John (Ravens) and Jim (49ers). The Harbaughs are also the son of coaching legend Jack Harbaugh, who along with his wife Jackie held his own press conference yesterday. Yes, this is the Super Bowl. Everything and everybody gets a press conference.
In the week leading up to Super Bowl 47, you’re probably going to hear a few things about Ravens star linebacker Ray Lewis or 49ers sophomore stud quarterback Colin Kaepernick or the Harbaugh brothers. Stop me if you’ve heard this before, but did you know Jim and John are the first pair of brothers to coach against each other in the biggest of all the Big Games?
