And thus, there were tweets like this, from Adam Kilgore:
In Bryce Harper’s locker, there were two neon yellow posterboard signs: “This is a clown question, bro: Will you marry me Bryce?”
And like this, from Amanda Comak:
Harper said he probably wasn’t going to say yes. But he certainly got a kick out of the gesture.
Because everything in the world is now on the Internet, and because this chap named @RecordsAndRadio somehow finds it all, here’s an image of that sign.
The person who posted the image also sent this tweet to the Nats’ official account: “look at my friends sign!! The guys in the bullpen took her number! We expect a call!
And this one, to Tyler Clippard: “hey we hope that you give bryce her number!!!”
