Saturday, there was a bit of history in DC sports. The Washington Redskins, Washington Capitals, and Washington Wizards all won on the same day for the first time in 32 years (and nine days). And if we’re counting just by days, it took 11,697 of them for this to happen again.
The Redskins’ 38-24 win over the Eagles gave the Skins the NFC East title (8-7 record) and a playoff berth. It was also the Redskins’ 600th win as a franchise.

The Capitals (26-6-2), who defeated the Montreal Canadiens 3-1 two hours earlier, are the NHL’s best team (54 points) and have a 10-point lead over the New York Rangers in the Metropolitan Division. The Caps have lost less in regulation (6) than the Redskins (7), despite playing in 19 more games.
The Wizards, who defeated the Nets 111-96, are dead last in the Southeast Division at 14-14. But hey, they don’t have a losing record!
It’s a good time to be a DC Sports Fan. Let us forever remember December 26, 2015 as a good day.
