Bryce Harper Gets A Gatorade Shower (Video)
The Washington Nationals have been making a habit of dousing their nightly heroes with a cooler of Gatorade. And while some have come to believe that these Gatorade showers are actually intended for Nationals sideline reporter Kristina Akra, last night’s was meant for one man, and one man only. That man is Bryce Harper.
With two outs and the bases loaded during the bottom of the 12th inning of last night’s contest against the New York Mets, Harper stepped up to the dish and drove in the game-winning run with a single to left field, giving the Nats the 7-6 victory.
After celebrating with his teammates, the rookie left fielder stepped up to the microphone to have a word with Kristina. But the celebration wasn’t over yet, as a couple of Harper’s teammates reemerged from the dugout with a cooler full of Gatorade that had his name written all over it. And it may have had Kristina’s name written on it as well, but she was able to dodge the shower in the nick of time, although, it nearly cost her a black eye as she narrowly avoided running into a nearby camera.
Check it out.
