Bryce Harper tweets photo of Chipotle card that gives him free burriots for life


If there’s one thing we all should be worried about in this wacky world, it’s whether or not major league baseball players have the necessary means to procure themselves a tasty burrito from Chipotle. Obviously, baseball players, such as Washington Nationals slugger Bryce Harper, have millions of dollars in the bank and presumably, vast amounts of cash at their disposal at any given moment. But happens if Harper is short on dough and there is no ATM machine around, he has misplaced his debit card, yet he has a huge hankering for tasty Chipotle burrito goodness?

Thankfully for Harper, the Chipotle Mexican Grill restaurant chain came through and bestowed upon him a “Free Burritos for Life” card, meaning never again will Harper be left wanting when the moment arises when he feels compelled to satiate his craving for a Barbacoa Burrito. Hunger problems solved.

Harper, who I will now refer to as “Burrito Bryce” from this point forward, was a busy beaver on Twitter Tuesday, not only tweeting a photo of his “Free Burritos for Life” card, but also a photo of himself working the phones for the Nationals organization”s season ticket drive. Thankfully, all that hard work manning a phone station was rewarded with some free burrito benevolence courtesy of Chipotle.

And thank goodness for that. I mean, the only other option would have been to spend his own hard-earned money. No, not on a measly burrito, but on purchasing his very own Chipotle franchise. Goodness knows he could afford it.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have get some lunch. And unlike Bryce Harper, I do not have millions of dollars in the bank, nor do I have a priceless Chipotle “Free Burriots for Life” card. It looks like Ramen noodles for me again!

UPDATE:  It turns out the card does not grant Harper free burritos for life. Big League Stew reached out to Chipotle and the card reportedly is only good for one year. Still, not a bad gig if you can get it.
