I know we’re beating a dead horse (perhaps one that was never alive, either), but let’s. just. keep. beating… because it feels nice.
Last night, Bryce Harper – The Choosen One, The Next Best Thing, Brycecakes, the self-proclaimed future best player of all-time – made his home debut at Nationals Park. Attendance: 22,675.
Stadium capacity? 41,487 (record was 44,685, set last August… against the Phillies).
The Nationals spent nearly the entire offseason promoting a three-game series against the Phillies in early May, which they’re probably not going to sell out, but perhaps should have focused on the macro… the big picture… the greater good: the fact that they lay claim to Harper, who, admittedly, is a talent to behold.
So we have to ask: If a phenom makes his home debut and an INSANE throw to the plate but no one is there to see it, does it really happen? I think not.

Watch the video after the jump. For real, it’s unbelievable.
