Jim Harbaugh said he will accept the ice bucket challenge but not Pete Carroll’s challenge. He said his brother already extended challenge..

You cannot possibly be more Jim Harbaugh than clarifying that you are going to pour ice water on your head, but only because your brother told you to and not Pete Carroll. I know the phrase arch-nemesis is kind of dated, but Harbaugh clearly sees Carroll as some evil genius that he must vanquish.
In fact, I wouldn’t be shocked if Harbaugh was the one who created the Pete Carroll Wealthy Oil Barron gif. Straight out of a comic book movie. Then again, Harbaugh also strikes me as the dad that still has an AOL email address and puts web addresses into Google instead of typing them in the address bar.
The true winner in all of this is actually John Harbaugh. Another victory for older brothers around the globe. He has already beat his younger brother in the preseason, regular season, and Super Bowl. Now he challenged him to the ice bucket challenge. Big brother strength like you read about.
Update: The most Jim Harbaugh thing is to actually take the ice bucket challenge without flinching while giving the double peace sign.
