D.C. United: Harper joins forces with RGIII on his Twitter background

Bryce Harper and Robert Griffin III are both rookies, both superstars and, oh yeah, they both play in our nation's capital.

Harper recently decided these similarities were prominent enough that he should add RGIII to his Twitter profile background. The Redskins quarterback spotted the change and couldn't help but respond to the NL Rookie of the Year. Harper was elated at the tweet, but seemed even more pumped that the quick exchange had pushed his follower total past 100,000.
