Bryce Harper ditches Cowboys gear to start repping the Eagles instead

Welcome to Philly, Bryce.

One of the few bad things about the Phillies signing Bryce Harper earlier this year was that they brought another Cowboys fan to Philadelphia.

Just look at this disgusting quote from February 2017, via Washington Post:

“I wear [my Cowboys hat] every day. I’ve always been a Cowboy fan since I was 5 years old. I’m a Duke fan, I’m a Laker fan. I mean, I’m from Vegas, I’ll gamble on the best every single day. That’s what I do.”

Yikes.

Harper’s Cowboys hat certainly wasn’t popular with Redskins fans while he was playing for the Nationals in D.C.

So far, there’s been no evidence of Harper trying to represent the Cowboys in Philly. That’s probably not an accident; I’m sure he knows better. Harper’s not going to get away with that as easily as he did in Washington.

Instead, Harper has seemingly embraced his new city’s football team. Behold:

That’s a nice sight.

It’s also not the only time Harper has recently repped the Eagles. Here he is holding an Eagles jersey saying:

“I love green and black. I think it’s awesome. Black, green, and white ... it’s sick.”

Feel free to file this post away for whenever Dallas fans try to troll you by saying Harper roots for the Cowboys.

It’ll be fun to see Carson handing some touchdown balls to Bryce (none for you, Mike Trout) after scoring on Dallas in December.
