Washington Nationals phenom Bryce Harper could teach the media a thing or two about reporting. Harper, 19, was asked by a Canadian reported on Tuesday if he would partake in a beer while the Nationals were in Toronto, where the drinking age is 19, for a series against the Blue Jays.

Now, the video of Harper's reaction has surfaced on the web, courtesy of The Score. Watch it here:
