PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The Washington Nationals fought hard in Game 7 to win the first World Series in franchise history on Wednesday night and “it was Bryceless.” While the Nationals celebrated their championship, fans took to social media to troll Phillies outfielder Bryce Harper.
Harper spent the first seven years of his career in Washington, D.C. before signing with the Phillies last offseason and Nationals fans were sure to let him know what he’s missing out on.
“It was Bryceless,” one fan told a local television station.

Other fans brought up when Harper slipped up and said he “wants to bring a title back to D.C.” during his introductory press conference with the Phillies in March.

Of course, there had to be corny puns.
I called Bryce Harper’s phone…
… But there was NO RING.

Many are calling him a “clown” for leaving Washington and think he is somewhere crying.

But there are plenty out there who don’t think he cares the Nationals won a ring because he’s too busy thinking about the $330 million he is going to make with the Phillies over the next 12 years.

Bryce Harper In philly while you’re worried about him. Concentrate on the guys that got you there and enjoy the win. Get over your Ex. It’s not healthy. pic.twitter.com/QElxAn20pP

One Phillies fan is calling Nats fans out, questioning when they were going to let Bryce go and if they were going to start showing up to games now.
