Breakfast with John Harbaugh in Florida


You had to get out of bed early this morning to catch up with John Harbaugh and the rest of the AFC coaches here at the legendary Breakers Hotel in Palm Beach, Fla., but a few of us braved the 7 a.m. kickoff and spent an hour talking football with the Ravens new head coach.

Aaron Wilson, myself and Jamison Hensley of The Sun were the main panel on the orange juice circuit and a full account of the breakfast will be available on wnsTV by the end of the day. (If the IT phone lines here at the hotel matched the pricetag of most things here, they’d be up by 10 a.m.).

Here’s Part 1 of the breakfast conversation (there will be at least a dozen “episodes” and it will take me part of the day to get them into the wnsTV video vault).

Lots of fun conversation and a few drop-ins by Pittsburgh and Cleveland reporters Ed Bouchette and Tony Grossi. John Clayton of ESPN also fired away.

I’ll have a lot more to write about the meetings, parties, work and play here in Palm Beach later in the day.

But for now, just know that John Harbaugh is as excited about the Ravens as we are.

His energy and upbeat attitude are infectious.

Baltimore is gonna love John Harbaugh.
