Pretty Boy Bryce Harper Spends 30 Minutes Doing His Hair Before Games
Bryce Harper is an incredible baseball player with great hair. Those two facts are undeniable. And just like his on-field performance is the product of many years of hard work and dedication … so too is his hair.
The Washington Nationals outfielder described his pregame styling routine on MLB Network yesterday and didn’t hold back on the details. After Intentional Talk hosts Kevin Millar and Chris Rose asked how difficult it is to get chocolate syrup out of hair, Harper got very honest.
“It takes a lot less than it does to get ready for a game,” Harper said. “Seriously, it takes me about 30 minutes to do my hair before a game. [Jayson Werth] takes a little bit of time, too. He’s got his Murray’s [pomade]. So he throws his Murray’s in there and lets it eat a little bit. As a team, I think we’re a pretty good-looking team, especially starting with J-Dub from the top with the beard. Scherzer with the two eyes, I mean, that’s incredible. That’s one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen. Drew Storen’s got the puppies, so you’ve got a puppy like that, you’re all good man.”
I know what you’re thinking. Doesn’t a baseball player wear a hat in the field and a helmet at the plate? Isn’t this all wasted effort?
To you I say “no.” You’ll notice Harper has a habit of accidentally losing his lid from time to time. All this pre-game hair work is simply being prepared should such calamity befall him.
Smart. Un-Jeter-like, but smart.
