In case you forgot, today is the birthday of our fearless leader, Jim Harbaugh! Coach Harbaugh hits a milestone today as he turns 50. Hopefully, the 49ers reward him with a victory over the Atlanta Falcons.

I had not thought of this before, but Coach Harbaugh's birthday happens to also fall on the celebration of "Festivus". If you don't watch Seinfeld you probably don't know what Festivus is, but I don't think I've ever met anybody who didn't know about it. If you don't know about it, the wikipedia page is fairly amusing. The holiday involves feats of strength, and an airing of grievances. Given how some referee calls physically pain Jim Harbaugh, it's safe to say we'll see some airing of grievance tonight.

Happy birthday and Happy Festivus, Jim Harbaugh!
