This we didn’t need.
Bryce Harper has become the second Washington Nationals Sports Illustrated cover boy; Stephen Strasburg was the first. When that happened, DC Sports Bog noted that DC sports coverboys haven’t always been bad omens.
UPDATE: Ghosts of DC notes that Harper is only the third D.C. baseball player on the cover, joining Strasburgh and Roy Sievers, a 1958 coverboy. Ted Williams was also on the cover as manager in 1969..
Also, Harper shouldn’t he be wearing the home whites. Why couldn’t he have gone with stirrups too? Need to wear solid black shoes too.
Of course, I’ll probably get a copy
41 days until opening day…
