HandShake-Gate: A Ridiculous and Completely Unnecessary Breakdown of the Jim Harbaugh and Jim Schwartz confrontation
After putting together the latest episode of the Ride The Pine video series – Jim Harbaugh Jim Schwartz Fight – I couldn’t stop examining the video and came up with this…
When San Francisco 49ers Head Coach Jim Harbaugh witnessed his team defeat the previously unbeaten Detroit Lions (I can’t believe I just typed that), he could have never imagined that his post-game handshake would overshadow their biggest victory of the season.
Since we here at RideThePine.com specialize in…stupidity. Lets take an in-depth look at the video footage that captured the confrontation between Harbaugh and Detroit Lions Head Coach Jim Schwartz.
The first bizarre moment comes when Harbaugh starts his run across the field in celebration and to meet Schwartz for the obligatory post-game handshake. Harbaugh lifts his sweatshirt/jacket up to expose his stomach.
Why? Because nothing says “Winner” like a pasty white belly. I was almost expecting for Harbaugh to expose a new belly tattoo that said “Thug Life.”
After showing the world where the food goes, Harbaugh finds his large offensive tackle Alex Boone. Boone, who gave the world a great shirtless mugshot in 2006 after being arrested for driving under the influence, jumps in the air to perform a mid-air chest bump But Crazy Hard-Balls (which is my new nickname for Harbaugh) isn’t in the mood for a chest bump, so he delivers a two-handed squeeze of Boone’s chest like a kid on prom night just trying to get some action so he can tell his buddies he got to “second base.”
[Setup] Schwartz commented in the post-game press conference that he didn’t get upset until after the handshake when Harbaugh yelled a profanity. Ok, now back to the action.
Schwartz pulls the classic, I’m not going to confront you I’m just going to run into you move by chasing Harbaugh and bumping into him. I’m surprised Schwartz didn’t try to give Harbaugh a “flat tire.”
It’s at this moment that my favorite guy in the whole video makes an appearance. The guy in the suit, or as I call him, The Triple Threat. He has the perfect comedy mix of mullet, goatee, and balding pattern to give endless laughter to anyone paying attention.
Schwartz doesn’t get really animated and heated until he is standing behind his tight-end, Brandon Pettigrew. Schwartz acts like someone is holding him back (which no one is) and starts pushing Pettigrew towards the fight.
All reports indicate that Schwartz’s shaking hand was not injured by Harbaugh.
