SALT LAKE CITY — The head coach of the San Francisco 49ers, Jim Harbaugh, has been the center of much discussion after he benched former Ute, Alex Smith, for Colin Kaepernick.

As Harbaugh fields questions about the decision, he also might start answering questions about his turn as Screech's cousin on an episode of "Saved by the Bell: The New Class."

This gem features Harbaugh as himself as he helps out a friend of his "cousin" Screech.

Harbaugh can throw a football and coach a team, but he's not much of an actor. Apparently he was also in an episode of "The Adventures of Brisco County Jr." And thanks to reader, Trevor Morgan, we have that clip.

Morgan found this little treasure deep in the backroom of YouTube.

The episode also included Terry Bradshaw, Ken Norton Jr., and Carl Banks. Thanks Trevor.

Worst Half-Court Shot Ever

Gonzaga has become more of a relevant basketball program here in Utah ever since BYU joined the WCC.

The school is known for skilled ball handlers, good outside shooting, the one and only John Stockton and un-athletic fans, apparently.

During the Zags game against Pacific a fan had the chance to win some cash by sinking a half-court shot. The guy looked determined, but the ball went about 9 feet in the air and almost made it to the foul line. Not a great effort.

This Needs to be Revisited

This is four-years-old, but it needs to be shown again. Not nearly enough people have seen it.

In 2008, this was caught on the Jumbotron during a Boston Celtics game.

The stadium started playing "Livin' on a Prayer" by Bon Jovi, and like any other time a Bon Jovi song comes on, people started to get into it, one guy in particular.

The dude gives us an energetic performance as he goes up and down the aisle as he channels Bon Jovi himself into the performance.

If you have seen it then watch it again, if it's new to you, you're welcome.
