Bronx-waiter mistakenly receives Bryce Harper news.....from not Bryce Harper originally appeared on nbcsportschicago.com
The Bryce Harper sweepstakes took a hilarious turn on Thursday when a New York waiter thought he had a tip that Harper had decided on the Yankees.
Our waiter tonight thought I was Bryce Harper so of course I played along and told him I was signing with the Yankees. He was very happy because he was from the Bronx.
Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Trevor Williams was out at a restaurant with his wife Jackie when their waiter mistook him for the 6-time All Star (Harper). Williams--being a good sport--decided to play along, telling the waiter, a Bronx-native, that he was going to sign with the Yankees this offseason.
While the mistake is hilarious, you can't completely blame the waiter, as you can easily see the resemblance between Williams and Harper.
You know what, I kinda don't blame him; there is a resemblance (sorta). pic.twitter.com/vfaKrzvjsY

Y'know if you tilt your head to the right, cover your left eye, and blink 10 times I can see why the waiter mistaken you. pic.twitter.com/kZAhbiOQeC

MLB fans had a blast joking with Williams in the comment section, with "Thicc Bryce Harper" qualifying as one of the funnier nicknames laid on Williams due to the incident.
But alas, the waiter will be like every other MLB fan, as we cling to every piece of news waiting for some indication of which way Harper and Machado are leaning.
Yup! It's Bryce Harper with some additional holiday weight!
