If Bryce Harper is one of the biggest sports stars in Washington, DC, but no other athletes recognize him, is he really a big sports star?
When asked to put a name to the face of one of the biggest names in DC, Redskins running back Alfred Morris fell short. WUSA9 in Washington thought they would spice up training camp a little bit by seeing how many Redskins players would recognize Washington Nationals phenom Bryce Harper — without his baseball gear on.
It would seem safe to say that professional athletes who play in the same city might recognize one another, but this experiment proved almost the opposite. Many redskins players had no idea who Harper was when they were shown his photo, but Morris had by far the most interesting response.
“Is that Tom Brady?”
Maybe if Brady had forgotten to shave.
Only nine of the Redskins players asked were able to properly identify Harper, while 12 flat out didn’t know who Harper was or couldn’t come up with his name.

Bryce Harper has yet to play two full seasons with the Washington Nationals, but he has already been injured several times.

By all accounts, the 2013 season has been a disappointment for the Washington Nationals up to this point.

Assuming the Nationals do not make the postseason this year, (which realistically...
BALL SO HARD
The man who lit up Ray Fosse in the 1970 All-Star game says that Nats phenom Bryce Harper needs to play under more control if he wants to have a long career in MLB.
Assuming many Washington Redskins fans are also supporters of the Washington Nationals, it’s probably safe to assume that many — if not most — of them would be able to identify Bryce Harper. The 20-year-old outfielder is the future of the Nationals franchise and one of the best young players in the game, but many [...]

Another embarrassing loss for Davey Johnson's heartless Nats...
If you know anything about Redskins second year running back Alfred Morris, you will know he’s humble, quiet, and pretty much to himself.
That quiet nature is the only thing that can save him from this embarrassing mixup.
According to Yahoo Sports, WUSA 9 In Washington D.C. had an interesting idea, where they would see how many Redskins players could recognize Washington Nationals...
