So much of the story at Super Bowl XLVII has been about the Harbaugh family. The brothers (John and Jim) going against each other while the father (Jack) was a former football coach who's so proud of his boys. 

But then there's Jay. 

Jay Harbaugh is 23 and the son on Jim Harbaugh, coach of the 49ers. He works for his uncle John as a coaching intern with the Ravens. Therefore, he's going against his dad in the Super Bowl.

Talk about another family battle. Wow.

Jay Harbaugh been working with the Ravens this season, according to an article in the Los Angeles Times this weekend. The article said he's going to sit in the booth with the offensive coaches on Sunday and is having the time of his life. 

"I'm having the time of my life," said Jay in the article. "The entire experience is everything that you dream about. I'm just ecstatic about the whole thing. Really, it's incredible, with your first year in the NFL to be in this situation. It's really incredible to be a part of."

Jack Harbaugh helped both his boys get started in coaching. Now John Harbaugh is helping his nephew get started in it, only he's going against his dad in the biggest game ever. 

They'll sure have plenty to discuss at family meals for a while, won't they?

The Harbaughs were careful about this, and in fact, Jay Harbaugh would only agree to talk to the Los Angeles Times if the story would not run until after media availability would be finished. Smart move. Then, Dad would be asked questions about what it's like to coach against son, which would give the media a different angle. 

Either way, the Harbaugh family is going to have quite a memorable day tomorrow.
