When Bryce Harper made the phrase “that’s a clown question, bro” famous while in Toronto last June, we all knew what would follow…The trademark, T-Shirts, Beers, but you know you’ve finally made it when you make it on Jeopardy.

  1. Bryce Harper is unpalatable as a person.

  2. I’m totally going to go out on a limb here and probably get owned for doing so, but I don’t really see what that reporter did as that outrageous, and above and beyond all things it certainly did not warrant the response from Harper nor the US fame (obviously). What I mean to say is, the question he (the reporter) asked seemed as an attempt to catch Harper off guard rather than actually stand as a “clown question, bro.” Maybe I’m wrong, but I feel it is hard to believe that one of the toronto press in there did not know Harper was a “strict” non drinking Mormon despite his personality. Or more specifically, while I understand there would have been other media types in that locker room given Harper’s presence during the series, most of the blue jays beat reporters over the last 1.5-2 years or so have been factually competent overall and I saw it as a witty comment before it got taken to a next level hashtag, bro.

    This probably makes me a clown for thinking this way.

    PS Also I believe this is my first comment on Getting Blanked (been a reader for a while), and while I do post a bit on DJF this post certainly is not a good way to start on this side of the lawn.

    • Nothing wrong with posting your opinion,especially on a blog.I have an opposing opinion but I understand your point..
      BTW. It was somebody from the Score who asked the question.

      • Wasn’t it Drew? And yeah, it was just a light-hearted question. It’s not often a 19 year-old phenom comes to Toronto and he wouldn’t be the first American to come here and drink legally for the first time.

        Harper’s response was pretty epic at the time. Now it’s just annoying. :)

  3. Harper seems like a humorless military crew cut type of guy.
