Bryce Harper hit an absolute bomb during the Nationals’ 4-2 win over the Blue Jays on Tuesday night. That makes seven homers for the 19-year-old since he was called up from the minors, further securing the notion that he is in the big leagues to stay. Since the victory and crucial home run came in Canada — where the drinking age is 18 — a reporter asked Harper after the game if he planned on going out for a celebratory beer. The rookie did not appreciate it.
“I’m not answering that,” Harper said. “That’s a clown question, bro.”
And cue the T-shirts. Typically we spend our energy ripping on Harper for hairstyles like this one or saying stuff like this, but in this case I can’t say I blame him. That was a dumb question, and while Harper gave a very Bryce-like answer I thought the reporter deserved it.
