Nationals win 2019 World Series

Congratulations to the Washington Nationals for winning the World Series. It’s the franchise’s first championship, which of course dates back to the Montreal Expos, and the city’s first since 1924 when the Walter Johnson led Senators beat the New York Giants in seven games. I rooted against the Nationals making the World Series, as it meant my Seattle Mariners are now the only active team to not make it there. But, once they got in, there was no way I couldn’t root for them over the Astros, who are a division rival of the Mariners.
