Jim Harbaugh: Devout ‘Judge Judy’ Fan By Day, Heroic Good Samaritan By Night

JimmyUniversity of Michigan football coach Jim Harbaugh stopped and assisted two patients after a rollover crash on I-94 Tuesday afternoon.

U-M Athletic Department spokesman Dave Ablauf said that according to a police report from the Michigan State Police Harbaugh and another staff member from the football program stopped to assist two passengers of a car that crashed at approximately 2:40 p.m.

According the MSP release, the 53-year-old woman driving the car was wearing her seatbelt but was partially ejected from the vehicle. A 73-year-old woman was in the passenger seat and was also wearing her seatbelt. Both patients were transported to St. Joseph Mercy Hospital by Huron Valley Ambulance Service, spokeswoman Joyce Williams said.

The crash was one of 50 that HVA responded to between 7 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Tuesday after a morning snow and ice storm left streets and highways in poor condition throughout Southeast Michigan.

Ablauf said Harbaugh and Jim Minick administered first aid to both individuals and kept them warm with coats until the emergency medical personnel arrived.


God damnit do I miss this lunatic. We’re barely into the NFL offseason yet I already miss his musk with the sadness of a thousand suns. I know that doesn’t make sense, but Jim Harbaugh is one of those rare creatures that pass through your life that you just have to stare at in amazement. When he’s not congratulating Judge Judy on her contract extension on Twitter, he’s giving aid to old ladies that got into a car accident. He is a man amongst men, a good guy, and one hell of a football coach. The 49er faithful will continue to miss him every damn day.

Holding Your Breath While Driving is a Terrible Idea

MANNING, Ore. (AP) — Oregon State Police say a 19-year-old man caused a three-car crash when he fainted while holding his breath as he drove through a tunnel northwest of Portland.

According to a news release, Daniel J. Calhon, of Snohomish, Washington, told investigators he fainted Sunday afternoon while holding his breath in the Highway 26 tunnel near the community of Manning. His car, a 1990 Toyota Camry, drifted across the centerline and crashed head-on with a Ford Explorer.

Both vehicles struck the tunnel walls before a pickup hit the Camry.

Four people, including Calhon and his passenger, 19-year-old Bradley Meyring, of Edmonds, Washington, suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

Police say Calhon has been cited for reckless driving, three counts of reckless endangerment and fourth-degree assault.

Some people hold their breaths in tunnels as part of a game or superstition.



Here is my first question, how long was this tunnel? Like I get these whole superstitious little games we play. Step on a crack and break your mothers back, I get it, nobody wants to be the one that steps on a line in the street and your moms back blows out. Nobody wants that, but sometimes if the tunnel you are going through is miles long and you don’t have the lung capacity for a hold like that it’s better off to live to fight another day.

The only way this story would have made sense is if these two were from Florida. At least then I wouldn’t really feel the need to explain why it was a dumb idea. It’s a car, they are from Florida…that’s it.


PS- Now if we are talking about the ground being hot lava then all bets are off. I would crawl on tables in public places to accomplish my goal.
