Think about it. The Capitals won their first Stanley Cup a couple seasons ago, upending the Vegas Golden Knights, 4-1. The Washington Mystics won their first WNBA title this year behind Elena Delle Donne's dominant play. Now, the Washington Nationals are two wins away from their first World Series title thanks to a strong rotation and Juan Soto.
Granted, there are outlier teams such as the Redskins (cough, cough, Dan Snyder) and the Wizards. Still, the nation's capital has suddenly become a bastion for competitive sports teams. This is good for a region that has been starved for championship teams since the early 90s. Even with their football team winning Super Bowls, Washington, D.C. has not had much to cheer for.
What makes it even sweeter for Nationals fans is that they made the World Series without Bryce Harper around. The irony of Philadelphia missing the playoffs while the Nationals remain two games away from their first title is delicious.
My life! Food, sports, school. It's what it is!
