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.

'CLOWN QUESTION, BRO'
Oh, Bryce Harper, you scamp you.I've been critical of the Washington Nationals wundekind, but, now, he's kinda growing on me.And if you're already tired of hearing (reading), "that's a clown question, bro"...you'll want to continue your Twitter silence for a little longer.That said, courtesy of our friends at The Score...here's the quote in all its...
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!
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...
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...
Washington Nationals phenom Bryce Harper has started a catch phrase that’s really catching on — In the same vein as Don’t Taser me Bro, and Honeybadger don’t care, comes Bryce Harper’s soon to be award winning saying. Props to Bryce for knowing exactly what a clown question is….Bro. -TO

Sports every season have their share of "PHENOMS" and this year's no exception. Baseball's phenom this year is Bryce Harper the 19 year old who made his MLB debut with Washington April 28th. Harper's the youngest position player to come into MLB since Adrian Beltre in 1998. The youngster first came into the public's national consciousness...
