Behind the scenes of the Washington Nationals’ World Series celebration and shirtless Zamboni ride at the Nov. 3 Capitals game
The Washington Nationals beat the Houston Astros 6-2 in Game Seven of the World Series to become world champions for the first time. In the locker room, they tried to drink out of the Commissioners’ Trophy like it was the Stanley Cup – at some point bending three of its flags. On November 2, the team paraded down Constitution Avenue. The next evening the players filed into a party bus and drove into the underbelly of Capital One Arena to celebrate at a Capitals game.
“That was the best night for me,” Adam Eaton said in an interview on the RMNB Podcast. “I loved the parade but this was better than the parade. The reason it was better than the parade was because — no offense to the families — it was the last time that we could have everybody together. Just the boys. It was the roster. There was no wives, no kids, no nothing. It was just the boys. Let’s go.”
