Harbaughs Vs. Baldwins: Which Pair Of Siblings Stand Out?

Talent is a rare and fickle thing. For even one person in your family to be world-class at anything is unlikely. But for two people who share the same parents to be famous? That’s downright silly. And yet here we are in a world full of Arquettes, Hasselbecks, and Williams. So when two brothers coach teams to the Super Bowl, it makes us wonder: who are the better uber-siblings: the Harbaughs or the Baldwins? Let’s go to the tape:

Harbaughs
Baldwins
San Francisco 49ers v Baltimore Ravens
16th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards - Red Carpet
BEST FAMILY MEMBERS
Winner Well, considering that John and Jim are headed to the Super Bowl, we'll say them. Also, we don't know if they have any other siblings.
Alec and uh...cripes. Who's number 2? Billy? Stephen? Definitely not Daniel, in any case.
BETTER NAMES
Jim and John. Good, healthy, American names.
Winner "(Bleep!) you, that's my name!" And the other name doesn't matter. It could be Aloysius and this one would win.
THROWS TEMPER TANTRUMS?
Winner Heavens yes. Poor Frank Gore.
Winner Without a doubt. Poor Alec Baldwin's daughter.
NOTABLE ACCOMPLISHMENT OF THE ARGUABLY LESS FAMOUS BROTHER
Winner Leading the Ravens to the Super Bowl with a joyless Joe Flacco.
Uh, "being intimate" with Cindy Crawford('s body double) in "Fair Game".
Famous Quote?
Winner "Jive turkeys not welcome in the 49ers locker room." - Jim Harbaugh
"There are people who would rather choke than go see my movies. They write me letters all the time." - Alec Baldwin
MOST NOTABLE ACCOMPLISHMENT?
Winner Well, one will be a Super Bowl champ next week.
Alec is one of the few bankable SNL hosts, which is almost harder than winning a Super Bowl.
ONE OF THEM GETS TO HANG OUT WITH TINA FEY?
Naw...
Winner Yeah!

The Winner Is

San Francisco 49ers v Baltimore Ravens
Winner Harbaughs
5 out of 7

This Super Bowl-bound duo will be performing on arguably the biggest stage of the year with an estimated 100 million people watching their teams battle. The Harbaughs take the cake in this Tale between famous brothers. #Harbowl

    Peyton Manning broke the career TD record. Everyone knew it was coming. But was it as expected as Matthew McConaughey’s Oscar?
