Bryce Harper's response to a 'clown question'
Teenage phenom Bryce Harper has been the consummate professional since being called up to the Nationals on April 27.
So, after hitting a mammoth third inning home run in Toronto on Tuesday, a Canadian reporter threw Harper a curveball asking him if he'd have a celebratory beer since he's of drinking age in Canada.
Before a Nats PR rep could step in, Harper delivered this classic response that is sure to become an internet meme.
