Bryce Harper’s Latest Instagram Post is Everything I’ve Ever Wanted


Bryce Harper will play his first regular season game as a member of the Phillies on Thursday afternoon. He will face Braves starter Julio Teheran, a pitcher he has reached base against 29 times in 51 career plate appearances. Included in those 51 plate appearances are eight home runs, three doubles, and seven other base-hits. That said, Harper will undoubtedly bring Phillies fans to their feet on Thursday before the game and likely again during it. For now, his Instagram game remains nearly as impressive as his numbers against Teheran.

I give you, loyal readers, what I call Perfection.

How I longed to see these things; how I longed to see the Liberty Bell and party on the streets where Bobby Clarke, Nick โ€œBDโ€ Foles, and Chase Utley had partied! #Phamily

-Bryce Harper

Walt Whitman, T.S. Eliot, Robert Frost, Bryce Harper. Poets all, beautifully baring their souls.

In all seriousness, this is tremendous work by Harper. He gets points for Nick “BD” Foles and Chase Utley, although in order to party on the same streets as Bobby Clarke, he might need to cross the bridge and walk down the Black Horse Pike in Audubon by Rexy’s, but point taken. Either way, Harper has been masterful both on the mic and on social media in terms of creating goodwill from the fans before ever playing a meaningful game.

  1. Bryce had a great introductory press conference. Since then everything he does is so corny lol. I mean I appreciate it but and its great you want to be in Philly but whoever is feeding you this info to drop, just chill. Go out there and hit some dingers. The other stuff comes with time.

  2. When the Phils start rolling this guy has the chance to be Joel Embiid part 2. Funny dude and says the right things.

  3. Notice how Bryce didn’t mention any 76ers or Ryan Howard. Bryce is a racist!

  4. ‘Nick “BD” Foles’……ummm….its BDN, literally nobody in the known universe has ever called him Nick “BD” Foles before this interwebs post. Get it right and put some respect in your tone.

  5. remember listening to two frickin days of whiny sports talk hosts and callers (Angelo, Joe Giglio come immediately to mind) saying that Harper and his wife do not want to come to Philly, aren’t “philly guys”, love LA, blah blah blah….stupid

    watched the Harper special on Comcast last night….pretty good…..Harper seems like a good dude, and starting to like this Middleton guy…… if everything was truly genuine, then I think this signing will really pay off….
