The Washington Nationals are without a doubt one of the best stories of the year.  And, of course, you can’t talk about the Nationals without inevitably turning to the direct youth infusion that is Stephen Strasburg and Bryce Harper.  Probably the most amazing thing about these two guys is how well they seem to be handling the pressure at their relatively young ages. Ever since we first celebrated Stras-mas in 2010, we knew we were in for something special.  Bryce-giving has been almost as good.  Through half a season his numbers have him in a rarified group of baseball players and already have stat-heads drooling over his promise.  However, that initial part of the sentence, “through half a season,” should remind us that he’s not yet Micky Mantle. If there’s one thing that really makes me believe that Bryce-giving could become the same annual holiday that Stras-mas appears possible to become, it’s this: That question had foot-in-mouth disease written all over it.  But instead of p...

Harper gives origin of famous quote

Bryce Harper's famous "That's a clown question, bro" quote has gone viral, and Harper finally explained the origins of it.


Senator Reid: 'That's a clown question, bro'

Senator Reid responded with a quote taken from Bryce Harper during a fairly incredible moment at a press conference on Tuesday. The Senate Majority Leader just went a few notches in my book with this comment, and you have to love that this has gone viral already. Senator Reid hails from Nevada, where Harper was born, and has already met the young phenom. via The Washington...

Bryce Harper uses Bieber song for at-bat

We aren’t sure if the young phenom, Bryce Harper, maybe lost a bet or he just has a thing for Justin Bieber’s music. Either way when he came to the plate last night he was accompanied by Justin Bieber’s ‘Boyfriend’ which was blaring through the loudspeaker. Given his performance on the field lately, we are fairly sure he gets a pass. H/T The Big Lead via Washington...

Video: Senator uses famous Bryce Harper quote

Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) drew plenty of laughs — and perplexed faces — when he responded to a reporter’s question at Capitol Hill on Tuesday by saying “That’s a clown question, bro.” Reporter Steven Dennis asked Reid, the senator majority leader, about the ongoing student loan battle, when he received the unconventional response. “I don’t want to answer that...

Senator Harry Reid drops Bryce Harper’s “That’s a clown question, bro” to much laughter

Well, I didn’t see that coming. I guess it’s safe to say that the Bryce Harper inspired meme, “That’s a clown question, bro” has officially jumped the shark, now that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid dropped the line at a recent press conference.  It’s not that the line itself has gotten old and lame, it’s just that guys like Harry Reid shouldn’t be using it, under...

Senator Harry Reid does Bryce Harper's "That's A Clown Question, Bro" during press conference (Video)

Previously on Outside the Boxscore, we featured a rather entertaining sound byte from Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper as he told off a Canadian reporter with the statement, "That's A Clown Question, Bro". Well, it appears that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid was listening and decided to pull it out during a recent press conference: To note...

A "Bryce call me maybe?" sign at Nationals Park...

It was only a matter of time before someone went out on a limb and held up a "Call Me Maybe?" sign for Bryce Harper at a baseball game. And it finally happened during Friday's Nats-Yankees game at Nationals Park. Boom. And of course, it was only a matter of time before someone made a Harvard Baseball Team/Call Me Maybe/Bryce Harper/"That's a Clown Question...

Sen. Harry Reid Channels Bryce Harper With 'That's a Clown Question, Bro' Response to Question

It's usually a pretty poor idea for a politician to invoke sports into any of their rhetoric, whether it's planned or organic. For proof of that, just ask Thomas Menino. Or John Kerry. Or Martha Coakley. And that's just in Massachusetts. Sometimes, however politicians are able to pull it off smoothly, which is exactly what Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid did on Tuesday...

Bryce Harper uses Justin Bieber’s “Boyfriend” as his walk-up music, and I’m OK with that (VIDEO)

How ridiculously appropriate. On Tuesday night against the Tampa Bay Rays, Nats outfielder Bryce Harper strolled to the plate to the sweet sounds of Justin Bieber’s hit single, Boyfriend.  Now you’re probably thinking that Harper must have lost a wager or something, because what kind of grown man is such a fan of The Biebs to use one of his songs as their walk-up music?  But...

The hit song "Boyfriend" by Justin Bieber was the walk-up song for Washington Nationals superstar Bryce Harper as he walked to the plate to bat on Tuesday night.Check out the video below as some fans in Washington are shocked and surprised by the song.
