Harper talked to various media-types about possibly being named to the MLB All-Star team (he's a final candidate selection), but the suprisingly modest Harper didn't necessarily view the selection as a be all-end-all. After praising fellow final selection candidate Chipper Jones, he said “If I don’t make the team, I think it’d be good for me to go home, get away from the world and be Bryce. Be normal, just hang out with the family and get some good home-cooked meals and hit with my pop and just hang out…Of course I want be there and be in the All-Star game, of course, but if it doesn’t work out, hopefully I’ve got 20 years in my career to get back there.”
Harper it seems, has a lot more to him than simply baseball. Responding to a fan on the Nats website, he talked about what he'd do if he didn't play baseball–and what he's apparently going to do in the offseason.
“I’d probably be a firefighter. Ever since I was growing up, I wanted to be a firefighter or a baseball player. Going into the offseason, I’m going to get my EMT and do the firefighting thing so I have something to fall back on.”
While firefighting is the furthest thing from a clown occupation, Harper is probably one of the last people–barring injury of course– to need “something to fall back on.” Dude's already one of the biggest Bros to ever pick up a baseball bat. If all the above wasn't an indication of this, check out the picture of his tricked-out Mercedes AMG:
Look close at the BAM 34 & the Washington Nats logo. Total bro move and there’s not a thing you can do about it. I’m looking at you, last place Philly.
