HBO released some teasers for tomorrow's episode of Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel, which will feature a profile of new Michigan head man Jim Harbaugh. And it's probably something you shouldn't miss.

First, Harbaugh discusses his own tendency to "wear people out." From Pro Football Talk:

"You didn’t always play well with others, necessarily," Kremer says to Harbaugh.

"Yeah, people say that," Harbaugh responds.

"Well, what do you say?" Kremer asks.

"It must be true, yeah," Harbaugh replies.  "Sometimes I’d wear out my welcome."

"What does that mean you wear out your welcome?"

"They just don’t want to be around you after a while," Harbaugh admits.

It happened not only when Jim Harbaugh was a youth, but also as an adult.  And that may have contributed to his departure from the 49ers.

Kramer then got comment from 49ers guard Alex Boone, who OH YEAH PLAYED AT OHIO STATE.

"He does a great job of giving you that spark, that initial boom," 49ers guard Alex Boone tells Kremer.  "But after a while, you just want to kick his ass. . . .  He just keeps pushing you, and you’re like, ‘Dude, we got over the mountain.  Stop.  Let go.’  He kind of wore out his welcome."

And then there's Jim Harbaugh swearing about milk, which is the real takeaway here.

"I heard that if you drink milk that builds strong bones, and convinced myself that I’ll drink as much milk as I possibly can drink," him Harbaugh said.

So as a third grader, Jim Harbaugh said he got a job at his elementary school distributing milk to the students.  The pay was a free milk every day, plus the ability to drink the milk of the kids who weren’t there or who didn’t want their milk.

"I drank a lot of milk, Andrea," he says.  "A lot of milk.  Whole milk, though.  Not the candy ass two-percent or skim milk."

There you go: Jim Harbaugh doesn't drink "candy-ass" milk. You can catch this full piece Tuesday night at 10PM eastern on HBO.
