Bryce Harper stopped by MLB Network's Intentional Talk on Tuesday afternoon and he revealed that his pregame routine involves a considerable amount of time spent on grooming.
The Nationals star was asked about the cleanup process after the team's postgame chocolate syrup celebrations when he revealed that his signature hair style takes about half an hour before each game to perfect.
“Seriously, it takes me about 30 minutes to do my hair before a game. [Jayson Werth] takes a little bit of time, too. He’s got his Murray’s [pomade]. So he throws his Murray’s in there and lets it eat a little bit. As a team, I think we’re a pretty good-looking team,
Many people might think this is too much time to spend on your hair, especially for a job that requires either a hat or helmet at all times, but as the philosopher and cornerback Deion Sanders has said, "If you look good, you feel good. If you feel good, you play good. If you play good, they pay good."
Hard to argue with that logic, especially with Harper's 20 home runs so far this season.
