Found June 07, 2012 on Nationals Enquirer:
PLAYERS: Bryce Harper
TEAMS: Boston Red Sox
Raise your hand if you reached for the panic button when Bryce Harper dropped to his knees after diving for (and missing) what turned into a triple by David Wright in the 9th inning on Thursday afternoon. Harper stayed in the game: exhale. And then Davey Johnson revealed after the game that Harper has been dealing with back pain, and could be out of the lineup against the Red Sox this weekend. Panic button? Not so fast: Harper stated "I'm good" around 50 times in his post game interview (video here on MASNSports.com): "I'm good. Don't worry about it." So, exhale. Don't worry about it?

BP Unfiltered: This is a Bryce Harper Highlight by Sam Miller

Desmond’s Big Game in Pseudo-Historical Perspective
