On Wednesday, CSN Washington's Kelli Johnson interviewed Bryce Harper on his goals for the upcoming season (see the video above). Also, Harper clarified his previous statements about wanting to be like Joe Namath someday; doesn't want to get blackout drunk, but does hope to be an actor someday:
"I think people took that a little wrong: It's not like I want to go out and blackout drunk or anything like that. That's not anything I wanted to do.
It was the other side. The movies, the commercials. I love that kind of stuff. I think that's awesome. I think that's so much fun. When you're a baseball player you want to be an actor, when you're an actor you want to be an athlete. I think it's always been that way. I would love to fulfill a dream in that also, but I need to perform on the field first. And I understand that. There was nothing like anything on that Joe Namath thing."
In the immortal words of Joe Namath, via his classic 1973 Brut commercial: "If you're not gonna go all the way man, I mean, why go at all?"
