These days when a comment an athlete makes goes viral, it is only a matter of time before people start producing t-shirts and merchandise. It happened to Robert Griffin III with his 'RG3' moniker and it happened with New York Jets' linebacker Bart Scott when he famously said "can't wait" in a television interview. Both players were pro-active and decided to make merchandise using their famous words.
Now Nationals' outfielder Bryce Harper will do the same with the "that's a clown question, bro" comment he famously uttered last week that took the internet by storm. Prior to the Nats-Rays game tonight, Harper told Comcast SportsNet's Kelli Johnson that Under Armour will begin selling t-shirts with the now often repeated phrase.
Harper originally used the phrase when a Canadian reporter asked the 19-year-old a question about drinking last week. It quickly became a sensation on YouTube and was even used by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) in jest.
Will Harper wear the shirt in public himself? That's a clown question, bro!
