Super Bowl XLVII pits the 49ers' Jim Harbaugh against the Ravens' John Harbaugh. Patch shares the story of the Harbaugh family leading into Super Bowl Sunday.
They'll take an objective approach Sunday. Jackie Harbaugh and her daughter, Joani, vow to wear neutral clothes. Jack Harbaugh said he'll take off his coach's hat and just play the role of Dad. When it comes to Super Bowl coaches John and Jim Harbaugh, their family doesn't play favorites. But that didn't stop John from interrupting a nationwide media conference call last week to double-check. "Is it true that both of you like Jim better than John?," asked a Baltimore caller named John. Joani knew immediately that the voice on the other end was her brother. But there was a dramatic pause from Momma Harbaugh. "Is that John?," Jackie finally asked. "Is that John Harbaugh?" Dad followed up, amid laughter. "Mom was ready to come right through …

Travel packages to New Orleans are going fast.
As Ray Lewis makes his "last ride" with the Baltimore Ravens en route to the Super Bowl against the San Francisco 49ers, hundreds of Ravens fans are tagging along for the trip. The Baltimore Sun reported yesterday that eager Ravens fans—including the fan known at games as Carne Cabeza—are snapping up hotel rooms and travel packages for New Orleans. All Southwest Airlines service out of BWI Airport around Super Bowl weekend is booked, and JetBlue Airways is evaluating demand for additional flights on its special service from BWI to New Orleans, the newspaper reported.

Check out some of the news from the Ravens' camp and more as the team prepares for its trip to the Super Bowl next month.
Despite playing in New England, fans came in big numbers to watch Ravens earn the franchise's second Super Bowl trip. The head coach and players noticed.
John Harbaugh smiled plenty throughout Monday's news conference. Considering his team is headed to the Super Bowl a week from Sunday, that's no surprise. But the Ravens coach really beamed when the conversation turned to Baltimore's fans. Harbaugh and his team were both delighted at the large number of Baltimore fans that went up to New England and watched the Ravens beat the Patriots, 28-13, in last Sunday's AFC title game. "We might have had one-eighth of the crowd, which is really a high number for a visiting AFC Championship game. That speaks so much about our fans," Harbaugh said when talking to the media Monday in Owings Mills. "For all of those people to make that trip up there at this time of year to support their Ravens is just—…

Republican Todd Huff went to the 2011 game in Dallas with a shopping center and apartment complex owner.
Todd Huff says he's not a big football fan, but in 2011 he attended at least four games, including taking a trip to Dallas to see the Super Bowl with a local shopping center and apartment complex owner. The games highlight a hole that the State Ethics Commission says exists in legislation passed by the County Council earlier this year. The legislation was meant to bring county law substantially into sync with the state ethics law. Huff, a Timonium Republican, attended at least four games in 2011, including the Super Bowl. He wrote about the games, which include three Baltimore Ravens games, on his official council Facebook page. Tickets to one of the games were provided by Merritt Properties, as first reported by the Baltimore Sun. None of…
