Ravens coach John Harbaugh is as serious of a coach there is when it comes to football.

Put a banana split in front of him and he's a kid again.

After Monday's practice, an ice cream truck visited the team and served their treats to the defense, coaching staff and med. The offense lost the day's practice so they were not allowed to get any.

Standing in line with a few reporters, Harbaugh talked about waiting on the ice cream truck to come through his neighborhood as a child. And then the coach, in great shape to disguise the fact he's 50 years old, was handed a monstrous banana split.

"You never grow up when it comes to ice cream," he said.

Though the defense won, some players decided not to partake. Rookie defensive tackle Brandon Williams said he wouldn't indulge for health reasons.

The best moment came while reporters were interviewing left guard Kelechi Osemele. Nose tackle Terrence Cody walked by and screamed, in his best Forrest Gump impersonation, "K.O.! Ice cream!"
