Awkwardness ensues when Jim Harbaugh and A-Rod meet
Monday December 29th, 2014

Jim Harbaugh coached his final game for the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, and after grabbing one last win against the Arizona Cardinals, he found time to stop and chat with New York Yankees designated hitter Alex Rodriguez.

The two seem like a good match, as Alex Rodriguez has revealed himself to be big football fan in his time off from baseball, attending several games this season at both the college and NFL levels. Harbaugh, meanwhile, is a baseball fanatic who has caught 20 foul balls in his life and attended MLB games six days in a row before the start of the NFL season.

Maybe Rodriguez is hoping Harbaugh can hook him up with prime tickets for Michigan games next year.
