PHOTO: Jim Harbaugh shows up at A's game, brings glove just in case

San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh is keeping busy this offseason. First, he made an appearance on Judge Judy, and now he's showing up at A's games -- fully decked out in an A's hat, his baseball glove and what looks to be a brand new Jos. A. Banks button-up. (Hey, at least we know he owns something other than the 49ers-issued black sweatshirt and khakis.)

Attending an A's game shouldn't be a big deal, right?

Nope, it shouldn't. Except that, according to Eye on Football's John Breech -- who happens to be a San Francisco resident -- "Most people in the Bay Area insist you be a fan of the Giants or A's … BUT NOT BOTH."

We bring this up because Harbaugh drove in the Giants' World Series parade last October, where he was sporting -- you guessed it -- a 49ers-issued black sweatshirt and khakis. Harbaugh did don a Giants hat for the occasion, which, we imagine he keeps on his shelf next to his A's lid. 

Make of this what you will.
