Harbaugh Cries Over Music Selection at Heinz Field

Ah yes, seems that all Steeler fans favorite coach, Super Bowl Champion Ravens coach John Harbaugh, was quite peeved on Sunday night over the music section at Heinz Field.

NFL.com reports that Harbaugh wasn’t happy with the playing of Lynyrd Skynyrd’s song “What’s Your Name” showing an image of Flacco. Of course it also had Ben Roethlisberger on it as well, but why would that moron of a coach notice that?

Anyway, here’s the rest of the story as written by NFL.com

Before Baltimore’s game-winning, 92-yard drive late in the fourth quarter, the Jumbotron at Heinz Field flashed an image comparing the stats of Ben Roethlisberger and Joe Flacco while the Lynyrd Skynyrd song “What’s Your Name” blared from the public-address system. The chorus of the 1977 hit begins with, “What’s your name, little girl?”

That angered Harbaugh, who was bothered enough by the presumed insinuation that his QB was female that he later pulled aside a Baltimore Sun reporter to point it out.

This seems like a leap in logic by Harbaugh, but beyond that, we find it incredible that he processed this during the biggest moment of his team’s season. When asked about Skynyrd-gate, Flacco was amusingly clueless.

“I have no idea what you’re talking about,” the quarterback told The Sun, genuinely confused. “They were playing a song?”

Har har Johnny boy, always the comedian.

    If Harbaugh were astute, he would have turned the lame jest back on itself and pointed out that Ben imploded while Flacco proved that he was The Man. That would have met the point nicely and wounded more deeply than a peevish complaint about the music. And if Harbaugh were not so full of himself, he might have noted that Ben was also included in the graphic.

    But female NFL fans ought to be incensed by the slur. If Flacco were in fact a biological female and played as well as he played against the Steelers, it would signal a new day in gender equality. And Harbaugh and the NFL front office would be overjoyed. Talk about box office potential. Over night the Ravens would become the darlings of distaff fans everywhere. Big Bucks await the first team that finds a woman who can throw 70 yard bombs accurately. Maybe that day is close at hand.

    As I recall, Jack Lambert, the legendary Steelers linebacker, once suggested that all QBs ought to wear skirts since the rules protected them as if they were girls. Given the current rules protecting receivers, Ryan Clark probably thinks they should be wearing skirts, too. Right now!

    So don’t laugh too hard at Harbaugh, folks. He may know something. After all, if the current trend continues at NFL central, Roger Goodell may soon turn all the players into sissies. It isn’t as far fetched as you think.
