While I slept ...

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Reason No. 6,363 why I’ll never win a Pulitzer Prize: I looked across the aisle on the flight over Monday morning and saw Stanford coach Jim Harbaugh. It wasn’t hard to recognize him.

Harbaugh told a couple of guys sitting near us that he was heading to Green Bay to support his brother, Baltimore coach John Harbaugh, in Monday night’s game against the Packers.

Interesting, I thought. Then I fell asleep.

A few hours later, the New York Times reported Harbaugh either has or will interview for the head-coaching job at Notre Dame, located a few hours away from here. (Stanford athletic director Bob Bowlsby strongly denied the report.) I could have settled the whole controversy by asking Harbaugh to explain himself. Oh well. I’ll just go back to adding up numbers wrong on the NFC North blog. Carry on.
