How Sick Is Bryce Harper Right Now?

So, as a lot of folks should know by now, the Washington Nationals just won the World Series. Now, as a New York Yankees fan, I’m selfishly happy that the Nats defeated the Houston Astros in Game 7 last night. In any case, I’m not going to turn this into a bitter baseball fan post. Instead, I’m actually wondering about Bryce Harper right now. All in all, how does he REALLY feel seeing his former team win the year after he left?

Ok, for those who don’t know the history, Harper spent the first seven years of his career in Washington. Along the way, he became the Rookie of the Year, a multi-year All-Star and an MVP. Now, during this time, the Nats flirted with some good records, but they were never able to win the Pennant, let alone the World Series. Anyway, at the end of the 2018 season, Harper became a free agent. From there, instead of re-signing with Washington, he signed a 13-year $330 million contract with the Philadelphia Phillies.

Now, let me be clear, son. On the real, $330 million is a FUCK-TON of money, man! I mean, who the fuck wouldn’t sign that type of contract, fam?! Shit, if I was worth that type of bread, I don’t even know if I’d walk around with pants on, bruh. But, I guess everything comes with a price, folks (pun intended). Hell, one year after having an 82-80 record and missing the playoffs, the Nats just won the fucking World Series, brethren. All I know is, Harper’s GOTTA be sick right now, people.

Listen, I know a lot of Harper supporters are trying to use the “he’s got a lot of money, so he doesn’t give a fuck” argument. However, I don’t believe that at all, son. Frankly, high-level athletes are competitors, man. Meaning, they’re in it to win it, fam. So, no one can tell me that Harper doesn’t feel a way about watching his former team win it all. Especially when he was JUST there last year.

In the end, congrats to the Washington Nationals, bruh. Ultimately, I know the good people of D.C. have been waiting for this for a long time, son. By and by, I’m just happy that they handed the Astros that L, man. All I can say is, I hope my Yankees can mix it up with them next season. That is all. LC out.

Long Live Derrick Rose!

So, I’m going to be real, son. I may or may not have had an emotional reaction to Derrick Rose‘s performance last night. I mean, after everything that dude has been through, how could anyone not appreciate his game, man? Shit, after all of the injuries and all of the setbacks, Rose had a career night, fam. All in all, everybody needs to give him a standing ovation for never quitting and never falling victim to his past.

Ok, at this point, sports fans should be familiar with Rose’s story. Hell, he went from the Rookie of the Year and the youngest Most Valuable Player to the oft-injured/former franchise guy. Frankly, after a torn ACL and three meniscus injuries, nobody, including me, gave him much of a chance, bruh. Regardless of that, Rose kept working, son. Despite being traded a bunch of times and looking like a shell of himself, Rose kept the faith, man. With all of that being said, as part of the Minnesota Timberwolves, the stars finally started to align for him, fam.

Now, for anybody who missed it, Rose went OFF last night. While playing against the Utah Jazz, Rose scored a career-high 50 points while shooting 19/31 from the field and 4/7 from three-point range. On top of that, he made a game-saving block to stop the Jazz from tying the contest in the final moments. Like, could Hollywood even write a better story, bruh? Fuck no! Hell, Rose remained humble though all of his issues and just kept it pushing, man. All I know is, he deserves all of the praise he’s getting right now.

In the end, I hope this is the beginning of a new chapter for Rose, fam. Ultimately, I don’t expect him to drop 50 every night. But, I hope he can be consistent and reclaim even a fraction of his former glory, bruh. By and by, who doesn’t love a good redemption tale, son? On the real, I know I do, man. At the end of the day, long live Derrick Rose! That is all. LC out.
