Milk Aficionado Jim Harbaugh Enjoys a Giant Glass of Moo Juice with His Ruth’s Chris Steak (Pic)
This week, as promised, Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh went to Ruth’s Chris Steak House in Ann Arbor to take advantage of their disastrous “Score Big” promotion following the Wolverines’ 78-0 win over Rutgers.
Of course, Harbaugh did what any man would do when given a 50% discount at a steak house—he ordered the biggest, most expensive steak on the menu. However, his choice of beverage was a little, shall we say, unusual.
You see, Harbaugh didn’t pair his steak with a Napa merlot or Chilean cabernet. He paired it with a giant glass of milk.
Seriously. Take a look:

Now, don’t get me wrong. I love milk as much as the next guy. It goes great with a peanut butter sandwich, or mom’s meatloaf. But if I’m eating a $70 porterhouse I’m going with wine.
In retrospect, though, we shouldn’t be that surprised that Harbaugh went with a tall glass of moo juice. The guy is a real milk aficionado.
In a April 2015 interview for HBO’s Read Sports, Harbaugh went on and on about how much milk he drank as a kid, and “not the candy ass two-percent or skim milk” but whole milk. Harbaugh then reaffirmed his strong pro-milk stance this past September on the Dan Patrick show:
Now regular every day people go to Harbaugh with all their milk-related questions and concerns:
And Harbaugh even has his own milk endorsement deal:
Hopefully the milk at Ruth’s Chris Steak House wasn’t of the candy-ass variety, or they’re going to get a very nasty Yelp review from somebody with the username MUcoach63.
