And so, Bryce Harper's favorite baseball team is in town for a weekend series against the Nationals. The series couldn't be set up more perfectly - battle between two first place teams, and the first time since 1969 that a winning baseball team from Washington faces the Yankees.
Meawhile with talk of whether Byrce Harper should be an All-Star this year or not, it seems that Alex Rodriguez would vote for him if given a chance (via Washington Times):
"I love everything [about Harper]. I’m a huge baseball fan above all, even being a baseball player. He’s the kind of guy I would pay my money to watch play. I’m sure well after I’m done I’ll be paying my money to watch him play and break all the records." (Alex Rodriguez, via Washington Times, 6/14/2012)

'CLOWN QUESTION, BRO'

Bryce Harper gave us a gem that won't soon be forgotten when he responded to a question earlier this week with "That's a clown question, bro." The Nationals slugger got a little testy when asked by a reporter in Toronto whether or not Harper was going to celebrate a home run with a cold beer. This agitated Harper to which he gave the now famous response. That response...
Ha! If you suspend your rigid cynicism and let go, it’s almost like Bryce Harper is in all these movies, music videos, game shows, television programs and whatnot and actually answering all the questions posed with “That’s a clown question, bro.” That’s some good stuff right there. A fitting tribute to one of the best [...]
For those of you who do not know, Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper is only eighteen years old and isn't allowed to drink legally in the United States but is allowed to drink in Canada.
One Canadian reporter decided to ask Bryce about his celebratory beer preference after a win against the Toronto Blue Jays and Bryce gave him a classic response:
No one likes giving up hits to Bryce Harper, but 35 pitchers already have. What if we told you you there was a better way?
If you want to retire Bryce Harper every time he comes to the plate*, just try our patented 76-86 MPH Slider!™ The Yankees did on Saturday, and now you can, too! Once you do, you won't want to throw him anything else!
To start, Bryce Harper is 19-years-old. So it’s not legal for him to drink beer….in the U.S.
Well last night, Harper and the Nationals played in Toronto where it’s legal to drink at 19. So since Harper hit a very impressive home run in the Nationals’ 4-2 win over the Blue Jays, one reporter thought he would ask whether Harper would have a Canadian beer to celebrate. And...
"That's a clown question, bro."
Get comfy with that response, because you're about to hear it a whooooole lot over the next three or four days (the usual lifespan of such things).
If you're too lazy to watch the embedded video, that's how 19 year old National's slugger Bryce Harper responded to a question from a reporter asking him what his favorite...
After Bryce Harper delivered an instant classic ("That's a clown question, bro") in his postgame meet-and-greet with the media on Tuesday night in Canada, it was only a matter of time before t-shirts appeared for sale. For example, the t-shirt above, which is available here.
And then there's this one, available here
Send in the clowns!
