Sign incorporates ‘Clown question, bro’ into Bryce Harper marriage proposal (pic)

According to tweets from two Washington Nationals beat writers, a sign that brilliantly incorporated young megastar Bryce Harper’s infamous and now-trademarked line with a marriage proposal, somehow managed to find its way into prominent placement in front of Harper’s locker in Coors Field’s visitor clubhouse following the Nats’ 11-5 thrashing of the Rockies on Wednesday:

Awesome. The person who uploaded the photo sent a tweet to the Nationals official Twitter account indicating that “The guys in the bullpen took her number!” and that they “expect a call!” This individual also sent a message to Nationals reliever Tyler Clippard that read, “hey we hope that you give bryce her number!!!” so it is not a stretch to assume he likely was the player who took the gal’s number, so long as we can surmise the person knew the identities of various Nationals bullpen members.

We’ll have to wait and see if Harper does in fact give the gal a ring, but if he doesn’t, the young lady shouldn’t be too disappointed and remember that Harper is an extremely busy young man and further, he can get pretty testy when asked random questions, something that would no doubt comprise an initial telephone conversation.
