Washington Nationals right fielder Bryce Harper is ready for the start of football season.
Speaking to the Fox broadcast booth in the middle of Tuesday night’s MLB All-Star Game in Miami, Harper couldn’t contain his excitement when talking about the Dallas Cowboys duo of Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott.
“How you think Dak’s gonna be this year?” Harper asked Joe Buck, according to the Dallas Morning News‘ Jon Machota. “…He’s fun to watch. Him and Zeke are unbelievable.”
Prescott later replied with a compliment of his own for the 2015 National League MVP:
Harper’s comments may not sit well with Nationals fans who also rep the Washington Redskins, but his Cowboys fandom is nothing new.
When it comes to the Cowboys, expectations are through the roof after Prescott and Elliott helped lead them to a 13-3 record and NFC East championship during their rookie season.
With just about two months remaining until the start of the regular season, the Cowboys own the second-best odds (+1200; bet $100 to win $1,200) to win Super Bowl 52 behind the reigning champion New England Patriots (+350).
