Bryce Harper’s hilarious “That’s a clown question, bro” response to a reporter in Toronto led to one of the catchiest phrases of the year. Although Harper has been the object of our scrutiny here at LBS, we can’t say we blame him for his response; he was being set up with a dumb question by a reporter who was insensitive to the youngster’s religious beliefs.
Another person who didn’t like the line of questioning is Dustin Pedroia. The Red Sox second baseman says he knows the identity of the reporter and that he’s planning to “blow him up” when the team visits Toronto for three games beginning Sept. 14.
Pedroia felt Harper handled himself well.
“Poor kid,” Pedroia said of Harper on Wednesday. “I would have said [expletive] you, I’m 19.”
Of course he would have. That intense muddy chicken doesn’t mess around. Can’t wait to see what he does to the reporter in September.
