08:02 AM ET 02.04 | Jim Harbaugh is no stranger to news-making postgame handshakes, and Sunday's set up as a pure human interest story after John Harbaugh's Ravens won. The two met up at midfield at the end of the game for an awkward, but sweet exchange. With the stiffest upper lip possible, Jim walked right to the center of the field to meet his brother. John did no celebrating until they shook hands. They briefly spoke to each other, with Jim ending it by touching his brother's cheek and saying, "Good job." With that, John was left to celebrate, and Jim to console his players. ... CBS commentator Jim Nantz asked what he said to Jim. "I told him I loved him." What did he say back? "He said congratulations," John said.

For fans in Baltimore, yes, but maybe not for the SF crowd.

Whatever they did it was going to be a story, didn't matter if it was a big sloppy kiss, a friendly handshake, or a right cross

Now, if they'd wanted a real scene, they should have put their arms around each other, y'know, in a brotherly way, and turned and waved at their Mom and Dad in the stands.

Media will do anything to stir the ****. Just a bunch of jackals hoping to cause a problem and get some footage to sell. Failing to do so they'll make something up and hope it sells.

Congratulations Ravens and your fans. I knew this was going to happen(win) and I saiinnumerable time over the course of these two weeks. I knew you can't out bully(49ers) the bullies(Ravens). I saw this when the Giants played them and I knew this when the Ravens would play them. They just didn't know it.I know everyone saw how Suggs dismissively looked down on Gore at the coin toss. That look told the whole story of what was going to happen and if the lights don't go out, it a blowout loss for the 49ers....end of story. 49ers shutty and make more excuses. Apple and I'm out. Again, Congratulations Ravens!

wow your a genius ,, you don't know squat dude . It came down to the final play , one that was a questionable no call ... And what difference did the lighting make? did the Niners have better vision than the Ravens ?

I was hoping for the right cross.

Budweiser is already in negotiations with The Brothers Harbaugh for next year's heartwarming commercial with Clydesdales.

I am still crying over that " So God mad the farmer" commercial. Except they never showed any of the undocumented illegals that do all the milking of those cows. Maybe next year it will show them livin' the dream.
