Jim Harbaugh, who might become the next head coach at Michigan and get very rich along the way, is not a man who takes laser tag lightly. We know this thanks to a new column about Harbaugh on MLive, which contains this anecdote:

For instance, one of the activities at Harbaugh's recent bachelor party (he's been married twice) was laser tag. Everyone signed up for a name on an electronic scoresheet. He chose "Captain Comeback," an homage to his playing days as an NFL quarterback. And from there, everyone went to work.

When the fake smoke cleared and the game wrapped, it was revealed that Captain Comeback recorded more "kills" than anyone else in the party. Harbaugh won. Because he always wins. But upon further examination of where each person's shots came from, it became clear why he won in such a landslide.

"All his shots came against this 10-year-old kid," laughs Eric Bakhtiari, who played for Harbaugh in college and in the NFL with the 49ers. "He just sat there, hunting this 10-year-old kid so he could win.


Sure, go ahead and call Harbaugh crazy if you want to, but you can't fault a man for exploiting his opponents' weaknesses. If that kid didn't want to keep getting smoked, he should have made better decisions on the battlefield. Little punk probably wasn't even wearing proper boots, and therefore lacked the ankle support one needs to get into a proper tactical position.
