Bryce Harper hugs Mickey Mouse, the video

Monday I brought you word that Bryce Harper had spent his off day hanging out with Mickey Mouse at Disney’s Wild World of Sports. And to make myself feel better about posting images of Bryce Harper hanging out with Mickey Mouse, I quoted liberally from Michael Frayn’s The Tin Men, which hadn’t much of anything to do with Mickey Mouse, other than the implication that a robot could replace me right quick.

Now it’s Tuesday, and I’m about to post a video of Bryce Harper hugging Mickey Mouse. Which brings me to Nikolai Gogol’s Dead Souls.

“Anything can happen to a man,” he wrote. “The fiery youth of today would recoil in horror if one were to show him his portrait in old age. So, as you pass from the tender years of youth into harsh and embittered manhood, make sure you take with you on your journey all the human emotions! Don’t leave them on the road, for you will not pick them up afterwards! Old age, inevitable and inescapable, is terrible and menacing, for it never gives anything back, it returns nothing! The grave is more merciful than old age. On the tomb is written: ‘Here Lies a Man,’ but you can read nothing on the cold and callous features of inhuman old age.”

Anyhow, here’s a video of Bryce Harper hugging Mickey Mouse, via the Disney Blog. They seemed to hit it off nicely. Later Harper and his girlfriend went to the Magic Kingdom and posed with the Little Mermaid.
