Jim Harbaugh

Jim Harbaugh is, to put things mildly, a quirky individual. He showcased more of his quirkiness on Sunday night, showing up with a glove to Game 5 of the World Series at Wrigley Field.

Yes, a grown man and former professional athlete sitting in the bleachers at Wrigley Field decided to bring a glove to the World Series.

That move broke the internet – well, that and his uncanny resemblance to the “goat” of Cubs past — Steve Bartman.

But, the real question is why in the heck does a multi-millionare with connections need to bring a glove to the World Series?

Thankfully, that question has an answer — Harbaugh says you “just have to.”

University of Michigan head football coach Jim Harbaugh discusses being at Wrigley Field with his dad for the World Series

In true Harbaugh style, he was short on words and shorter on real reasoning.

Maybe it is the inner kid for Jim or memories with his dad, Jack, who was with him at the game?

Or, maybe its just a force of habit for a guy who also enjoys playing catch on the field and dons actual baseball cleats while throwing out the first pitch?

Whatever the reasoning, we should all agree that grown men shouldn’t be bringing a glove to the stands unless he’s holding it for his son or daughter.

C’mon man.
