LOS ANGELES -- With RG III on the sidelines nursing his crooked knee, it's time for another DC sports star to take the spotlight - especially with spring training just around the corner.
Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper made his late-night television debut on ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" Tuesday night, and shared stories from his first season in the big leagues - a season that ended with the Nationals winning the NL East title and Harper picking up the National League Rookie of the Year award.
Kimmel feted his guest with video clips, as the two discussed Harper's now-famous "that's a clown question, bro" catch-phrase, and Harper's long list of game-day superstitions and rituals - everything from repeated showering to arriving at the ballpark seven hours before game time and eating specific foods, such as Eggo waffles, before each game.
Harper is not the first Nats player to appear on late-night TV, in 2010, pitching phenom Stephen Strasburg helped David Letterman with his "Top Ten" list.
