If you saw John Harbaugh shake Jim Harbaugh's hand after Super Bowl XLVII, then you witnessed the most recent communication between the two brothers.
During a visit to David Letterman's Late Show on Thursday, John Harbaugh talked about the postgame handshake and his lack of communication with Jim since Super Bowl Sunday.
"I told him I loved him, you know, good game, and he said 'congratulations,' you know, 'I'm proud of you,'" John Harbaugh said of the postgame handshake.
Letterman then asked John if he had spoken to Jim since the handshake.
"I have not," Harbaugh said. "We have not had a conversation since. We will -- soon."
John didn't seem to know exactly when that conversation would take place.
"I'm hoping, you know, sometime soon. We actually, we have meetings coming up, we have a combine in two weeks."
When the two brothers do finally talk, don't look for John to try and console Jim.
"There's no way that you console your brother. Anybody that has a brother knows that. You don't console your brother, it doesn't work," John said.
Jim wasn't the only subject of conversation during John's Late Show visit. The topic of the Super Bowl power outage also came up and John finally explained why he was yelling at an official during the blackout.
"There was a concern about restaurants after the game. New Orleans got a lot of great restaurants, Dave. We weren't sure where to go," John joked.
Letterman closed the interview with an interesting question for John, "Do you wake up thinking, 'Oh, thank God I beat him' or 'Oh I won, but, oh too bad.'"
"You know, you do wake up thinking, 'thank God I beat him.' You do. Yes. It would have been a long life, you know," John said to audience laughter.
