In Monday’s night’s series-opening 10-4 win over the Giants at Citizens Bank Park, Bryce Harper provided fans with yet another magical moment.

With the Phillies up 4-2 in the bottom of the 5th, Harper hit a deep fly ball to center field that sailed over the head of center fielder Wade Meckler, who then misplayed it off the wall, allowing Harper to steamroll around the bases for an inside-the-park home run.

It was an electric moment, made all the more electric by Harper’s slide and reaction after crossing home plate.

Yes, that’s right friends, we have another Bryce Harper meme to add to the collection. 

Here are some favorites, ranked from best to almost-best.

Schwarber awe face

This one is legendary, Harper in awe of Kyle Schwarber’s 488-foot home run in Game 1 of the National League Championship Series last year. 

I actually have a Christmas ornament of this image.

‘This is my f—king house!’

We traverse back to Game 4 against the Padres in the postseason last year, when, trailing 4-2 in the bottom of the 1st inning, Harper roped an RBI double to right-center field that scored J.T. Realmuto to make it a 4-3 game.

After reaching second base, Harper animatedly (and with the assistance of the f-bomb) made sure everyone in the stands knew whose house CBP was.

‘I play for the Phillies’

Harper’s two-run homer in last year’s Game 5 of the NLCS, which sent the Phils to the World Series, was another signature moment. 

During the playoff run, players began tracing their hands along the “Phillies” script on the front of their jerseys to signify they all play for the same team.

Harper’s nonchalant version of this move in the seconds after his dinger cleared the left-center field wall last October was the epitome of “not-too-big-for-the-moment” cool.

The Fortnite wave

During the 2019 season, Phils players began doing a new celebration anytime someone got a hit. 

Apparently, the team was really into Fortnite at the time and decided to take something from the game as a show of recognition for a good moment on the field.

It’s so innocent and pure. Just like the Phillies.

John Stolnis grew up in Delco as a rabid fan of all Philadelphia sports, but the Phillies have always held a special place in his heart, particularly those disappointing Juan Samuel-led teams of the late...
