Harbaugh brothers stage dramatic SB

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The Harbaugh family sure knows how to throw a Super party.

In the end, it was older brother John Harbaugh and his Baltimore Ravens who came out on top, hanging on for a 34-31 win over Jim Harbaugh and his San Francisco 49ers in a Super Bowl that had everything.

After the game, John Harbaugh said it was hard to compete against his brother.

The brothers met at midfield as the confetti rained down. ``I told him I loved him,'' John said. ``He said, `Congratulations.''

Jim Harbaugh later declined a postgame interview with CBS.

With mom Jackie and dad Jack watching from somewhere in the Superdome, the Harbaugh brothers put on a championship game to remember. First it was the Ravens who raced to a 28-6 lead after Jacoby Jones returned the second-half kickoff a Super Bowl-record 108 yards for a score.

Then came a power outage, which delayed the game for 34 minutes. With the players sitting on their benches waiting for play to resume, Jim Harbaugh went to work.

His 49ers went on a surge of their own, and younger brother Jim had John on the ropes. The 49ers pulled within 31-29 in the fourth quarter, but just couldn't come up with one more play to pull off what would have been the greatest comeback in Super Bowl history.

The leadup to this game was all about the Harbaughs - the first time siblings had coached against each other in the championship game. Every day for nearly two weeks, the two were asked about each others' careers - John was forthcoming, Jim not so much. Even their parents got in the act with their own new conferences.

The Harbaugh family theme was: ``Who has it better than us?''

Certainly no family in the NFL.
