Bryce Harper's pre-game hair routine takes quite a while


Bryce Harper's pre-game hair routine takes quite a while

Have you ever watched a Nationals game and thought, man, what handsome fellows?

If yes, Bryce Harper totally agrees. That's what he said in an interview with Intentional Talk on MLB Network. 

"I think we’re a pretty good-looking team, especially starting with [Jayson Werth] from the top with the beard. Scherzer with the two [different colored] eyes, I mean, that’s incredible. That’s one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen.”

No #WokeUpLikeThis for your Washington Nationals. Looking good takes work, especially when it comes to getting the hair just right.

Harper's tall, slicked-back pompadour always looks perfect -- never flat or dented -- coming out of his helmet. That's no accident. In fact, it takes quite a bit of pre-game prep work. 

“Seriously, it takes me about 30 minutes to do my hair before a game."

It might not come as a surprise that Harper cares about his coif, but the other National he mentions comes out of left field. 

"[Werth] takes a little bit of time, too. He’s got his Murray’s [pomade]. So he throws his Murray’s in there and lets it eat a little bit."

Werth's appearance is a deliberate look, apparently. The more you know!

Did Max Scherzer's dance moves cause the Junkies' broadcast to lose power?

Did Max Scherzer's dance moves cause the Junkies' broadcast to lose power?

Watching Max Scherzrer rack up Ks during a game is a usual sight for fans.

Dancing is not.

On Wednesday while the Sports Junkies were broadcasting at Nats Spring Training in West Palm Beach, we got a taste of what the back-to-back Cy Young Award winner has to offer on the dance floor. 

With just about a week left until their season kicks off, manager Dave Martinez hired a DJ for the day's workout, saying he wanted to "turn it up a notch." 

Well he turned it up a few too many notches, causing the back end of the complex where the Junkies were broadcasting to lose power.

While the Junkies were put in a pickle because of said DJ, we were able to get a glance of Scherzer dancing to Drakes' "God's Plan."


It's nice to see the usually lazer-focused pitcher let loose.

While Scherzer's dance moves didn't actually cause the Junkies to lose power, it's nice to think they were too much for the ballpark to handle.

The sound of Bryce Harper's first spring training HR is beautiful


The sound of Bryce Harper's first spring training HR is beautiful

It's that wonderful time of year again — when baseball teams flock to warmer climates for spring training and the regular season is practically around the corner — and Bryce Harper is already killing it.

It took the Washington Nationals a few games to brush away their offseason cobwebs and get back into gear, but since the beginning of March, they're riding a five-game win streak as of Sunday the 4th.

They are 6-4-1 in spring training going into Monday's matchup against the St. Louis Cardinals.

Since Thursday, the Nats have taken down — in order — the Atlanta Braves, New York Mets, defending World Series champion Houston Astros, the Detroit Tigers and the Mets again. Sunday's 6-2 win against the Tigers was in large part thanks to Harper's bat, as the star of the team drilled his first home run of spring training. 


Turn up the volume for this one because the sound of Harper's contact with the ball is just beautiful — and perhaps enough to get you pumped for the March 29 opener.

Harper blew this ball away in the bottom of the third for a two-run homer with Howie Kendrick on base. He also had a single in the fourth and finished the game with three RBI.

Gio Gonzalez was the winning pitcher for the Nats.
