Inspired by Bryce Harper’s elaborate eye-black war paint Monday in St. Louis, Comcast SportsNet host Michael Jenkins decided to add an extra dose of makeup to his own face.

“It looked like he dumped a bottle of Pennzoil all over his cheeks,” Jenkins said. “Who could blame him? You’ve got to get jacked up for the playoffs. Well, whenever there’s a big game, that means this is a big show, and I’ve got my own way of getting pumped up, just like Bryce.

“Yeah, let’s do this! Extra blush, baby! Extra blush! Look how pretty I am. I’m a pretty pretty boy. Sooooo pretty. Let’s Go Nats!”

This is a fun market to work in sometimes.

(Full disclosure: Jenkins is a friend of mine, and is actually acting less weird than usual during this bit.)
