The walk-off homer is one of the most exciting moments in the game -- as long as you're a fan of the team doing the walking off. Nats star Bryce Harper is one of the most exciting players in the game, more than capable of capitalizing on potential walk-off situations.
It was also basically an exclamation mark from Harper, who agreed with the club on a contract for 2018 earlier in the day. A pretty solid Saturday for Bryce, but it also extended a particularly eventful few days for D.C. sports in general. It came less than a day after John Wall's thrilling, season-extending three pointer in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals propelled the Washington Wizards into a winner-take-all Game 7 against the Boston Celtics.
Given that context, as well as the concept of "game recognize game," here's what Harper had to say about celebrating his new Nats contract in style, as reported by MLB.com's Jamal Collier:
Yes, Wall heard Harper's comment, and approved:
My guy lol !! RT @jorgeccastillo: Bryce Harper on his walk-off home run: "Just trying to be like John Wall, walk them off a little bit."- John Wall (@JohnWall) May 14, 2017
When it comes to a game's key moment, Bryce seems more than willing to be The Guy, so to speak:
Having fun and getting the job done? That's skill.
