Hey, Bryce, bald is beautiful, baby.
Bryce Harper won the MVP Thursday night and he pronounced “memes” like it was somebody’s grandmother and not with the Internet-approved long-e sound.
The Nationals star was on the midnight SportsCenter with Scott Van Pelt and the bald broadcaster asked the newly-minted MVP if he’d rather “be as bald as I am for the rest of your life, or never have a season again where you have double-digit home runs.”
“I don’t even want to answer that right now because I know how many meh-mays are going to be out there of me with a bald head,” the well-coiffed 23-year-old said before reluctantly saying that he’d pick the bald head over a bunch of seven homer seasons.
Good for Harper for not knowing how to pronounce the word. He’s too busy hitting .330 with 42 homers and becoming the youngest unanimous MVP in baseball history to know the correct way to describe the artistry of a photo with some silly words in white block lettering over it.
That being said, sorry, Bryce, but we’re not sorry about the photo choice in this story.
