How big is Sunday’s NFC Championship? Apparently bigger than football.
Some of the most widely circulated news on Twitter surrounding the 49ers-Seahawks’ mega clash has had little to do with the actual game itself.
(Oh by the way, kickoff is at 3:30 p.m. PT on Fox.)
Here are some of the most popular offbeat stories from this week.
An yes, it’s only Thursday.
Wednesday 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh’s wife, Sarah, weighed in on her husband’s sideline wardrobe to a San Francisco Bay Area radio station.
As Ann Killion of the San Francisco Chronicle surmised, it’s horrible.
“I will not take the blame for his outfits,” Sarah Harbaugh said. “I’ve told him so many times, ‘That outfit reflects on me.’ ”
She then took at aim at her husband’s now-notorious khakis, which reportedly go for $8 at Wal-Mart.
“Eight dollars!” Sarah continued. “I’ve told him, ‘Please, pleats are gone.’ He’s got a flattering body. He just doesn’t care.”
Harbaugh did care to comment on his slacks that day.
“I heard they were making quite a bit of sport of me,” he said. “Happy wife, happy life.”
And happy Twitter bashers!

Seattle radio station 92.5’s “Brooke & Jubal in the Morning” hoodwinked a 49ers fan into thinking her tickets for Sunday had been revoked because she was rooting for San Francisco.
The unsuspecting fan’s reaction was priceless — “are you kidding me? … I will strangle you with a Colin Kaepernick jersey!”
Here’s the full soundbite:

In short, this guy’s either going to look really smart or really stupid at season’s end.
(49ers fans are hoping for the latter.)
