When Texas Stadium, the former home of the Dallas Cowboys was built, the press box had only a men’s restroom. There was no need for a women’s room.

Under Harbaugh, San Francisco has been to two NFC title games and, now, to its first Super Bowl in 18 years. The Niners (13-4-1) will play Baltimore (13-6), coached by Harbaugh’s older brother, John, in next Sunday’s Super Bowl. (more…)
