Nationals celebrate by pounding beers at Capitals game

The Nationals won the World Series on Wednesday, celebrated deep into Thursday morning, had their parade on Saturday so on Sunday they rested.

Haha, just kidding. On Sunday they went to the Calgary Flames-Washington Capitals game and pounded beers and took their shirts off and generally acted as if they own the town because, for the time being, they most certainly do.

Last night’s revelry was a bookend of sports to the Capitals revelry in the summer of 2018, part of which took place in a luxury box at a Nats game. The Nationals players returned the favor:

 

And, really, who needs shirts anyway. Hockey arenas are so balmy anyway:

Today the Nationals — most of ’em anyway — will visit the White House. Here’s hoping everyone involved keeps their shirts on.

The Royals and Rangers played the first game of spring training today. A few other teams (the Red Sox, Tigers and Twins) played or are currently playing college squads, but Kansas City-Texas is our first matchup of big league teams. Baseball’s back, baby! And you know what baseball means?

Kansas City’s Jorge Soler, who hit 48 homers last year to lead the American League, offered us the year’s first glimpse at recreational baseball murder when he took Kolby Allard out over the left field yard.

Mmm. That’s the good stuff. Here’s to eight and a half months more of that. Bring me the dingers.
