The Age of the Celly keeps delivering delights. In the aftermath of the Nationals’ World Series victory, fans in DC began a campaign of anarchic do-gooding.
In a video posted to Twitter by Richmond Times-Dispatch sports reported Jackson Didlake, a group of fans chanted to locate the owner of a lost phone, which had been dropped in the crowd during the chaos of all the celebrations.

That same night, fans also voiced their unanimous disapproval for rentable scooters, the locusts of DC. WaPo’s Meryl Kornfield provided this report:
