We’re just going to go ahead and say what you’re already thinking. There are two contestants on this season’s Bachelorette that look a lot like Philadelphia athletes.
Exhibit 1: Luke P. is Bryce Harper
While Phillies fans may have had love at first sight when the team signed Bryce Harper to a 13-year contract, his Bachelorette doppelgänger is also a man who falls in love fast. From the time Luke P. got out of the limo on night one, I can’t unsee his resemblance to Bryce Harper.
Looks like I’m not the only one; it has been confirmed on Twitter.
Exhibit 2: John Paul Jones is Nolan Patrick
I was a little wary of this one, but if another random human on social media says it, it’s a confirmed fact. The man that was so nice, they named him thrice, John Paul Jones is basically Flyers center Nolan Patrick.
The people have spoken.
Now, see for yourself.
As for the rest of the guys, with absolutely no advanced knowledge whatsoever, Peter, the pilot, will be the one at the end down on one knee proposing to Hannah B.
Jeremy Roenick first listed his Scottsdale-area home in 2012 and it finally sold last month. The weird thing is, his home could be one of the more beautiful Philadelphia athlete homes I have ever seen, and I have written up a bunch of them.
Originally purchased in 2005 for $3.8 million, Roenick listed it for sale in 2012 for a cheeky $11.7 million. It sold on April 1 for a final price of $3.3 million, which, when you see the inside and the backyard, might be an absolute steal.
Built in 1997, this seven bedroom, 7.5 bath estate of 18+ acres is one of the more stunning homes you’ll see. Everything on the inside looks custom, including the bathroom with a copper tub, massive closet and a bedroom that is giving off log cabin vibes. The property and views are truly stunning and the entertaining space is just as elegant as the inside of the home.
Outside you’ll find an open air dining and living room with a very large pool. If you have kids, they’ll absolutely love the wiffle ball field, which is complete with dirt infield, backstop and outfield wall. There’s also a three-hold golf putting green as well.
Just look at this place.
Congratulations to whoever purchased this home, it looks like a beauty.
Bryce, you sly dog.
After recording an out in right to end the sixth inning Tuesday night at Wrigley Field, instead of tossing the ball to a fan in the front row, Bryce Harper absolutely launched the ball out of the stadium and on to the roof.
Check it out.
Cubs fans had been giving Harper a hard time out there, chanting his name earlier in the game, so he channeled his inner Joey Votto to send them a message (see story). Two fans, blurred out, flip harper the bird after they see what he’s done.
Personally, I think it’s hilarious. Well done, Bryce.
