"He honked his horn at the bus and waved," Sherman told Mike Silver of Yahoo! Sports after the game. "That happened -- a bunch of the guys told me. Yeah, he was (honking)."
"Yeah, he (honked at us)," Thomas said. "It seems like he tries to be a professional in front of the camera, but he does his antics, like that, when the cameras aren't around. He's just a big kid. We don't worry about that stuff. We just play the game. The best team won (Sunday), and it was convincing."
Thomas and Sherman didn't witness the incident, and Harbaugh denied Monday that it happened, calling it a "fabrication," according To The Sacramento Bee. It might be apocryphal, but we almost don't care. It's hilarious and perfectly captures this 49ers-Seahawks rivalry in 2012. It's personal. It's more fun this way.
"I'm not gonna lie to you," Sherman told Silver after the game when recalling Seattle's final touchdown Sunday night. "I told Pete, 'Let's score and go for two.' He said, 'We have more class than that.' "
Sherman, who played under Harbaugh at Stanford, is referencing the famous time Harbaugh went for a two-point conversion late in a blowout win over Carroll's USC squad. Carroll now has an NFL-level powerhouse that's capable of blowing the doors off any team.
