Bryce Harper “that’s a clown question, bro” now in t-shirt form

Seriously, brah?

Every day here at The Legend, we can’t help but have at least one “ain’t-the-interwebs-grand” moment. Today’s is the that’s a clown question bro t-shirt. It’s not surprising, which is why the instant nature of this new world is simply mahhhvelous.

Here’s the quick background that led to the garment’s creation, courtesy of ESPN. A class digital age case study is it not?

The 19-year-old Washington Nationals outfielder quipped “That’s a clown question, bro” to a Toronto TV reporter who asked if he planned to take advantage of Canada’s lower drinking age after belting a long home run in a win over the Blue Jays.

For a brief time, the highest trending topic on Twitter was Harper’s response: “That’s a clown question, bro.” The outfielder’s name was also among the site’s most popular subjects.

In Ontario, the drinking age is 19, not 21 as in the United States. Following the game, a reporter asked Harper whether he planned to celebrate his huge homer with a beer, and what his preferred brand would be.

Harper is a Mormon, a religion that forbids alcohol. A Nationals PR staffer suggested the reporter try a different line of questioning, but Harper was ready.

“I’m not answering that,” Harper said. “That’s a clown question, bro.”

Another quote to integrate into my daily vernacular right alongside Matt Cassel’s “come at me, bro.” Bro-tastic. Get your fresh t-shirts here.

PS: Bryce Harper is starting to mature as a player both on and off the field. That’s frightening. Reminder. 19 years-old, in case you hadn’t head.
