After the Washington Nationals clinched the NL East Division Title last night, MLB released a whole line of championship gear for fans to purchase. One of these designs on a sweatshirt was a little bit odd because as you can see from the picture, it basically uses a giant cursive O that looks eerily reminiscent of the Baltimore Orioles logo (with a tiny Nats curly W logo in the bottom right). WTF? Get yours today for just $70. Here is what the Orioles shirt looks like:
Here are a bunch of awesome GIFs from the Nationals celebrations last night after clinching the NL East Division Title. You've got hugs, high fives, screaming, dancing, yelling, toasts, smiles, crazyness and more. Check em' out (give them a minute to load I screwed up the sizes).

Well they've done it again. The Washington Nationals are 2014 NL East Champions! The scene after the game clinching in Atlanta looked like one heck of a celebration. Here are our top images and videos from the magic night.
Bryce Harper was all over the locker room celebrating the Nats NL East Championship and he was sporting a custom #34 HARPER fire helmet. Where did Bryce get the hat? "A DC firefighter hooked me up"

During Saturday night's broadcast of the Nationals vs Mets on WPIX New York, former Mets great and current TV analyst Keith Hernandez had a few things to say about the way Bryce Harper swings a baseball bat. Hernandez was not impressed with the extremeness of the swing, and went on a good minute long rant about it on the air. But after that minute was up, Harper showed Hernandez just how "bad" of a swing he really had...and this happened.

I'm not sure where the whole "Yeah Baby!" thing started, but after a very interesting Matt Williams trip to the mound with Doug Fister earlier this week, Nats fans have taken and ran with the old 1997 Austin Powers made-famous phrase. During that mound pow-pow, Williams said he asked Fister if he wanted to face the next batter, to which Fister replied with the new catch phrase. And every game it grows.
Well it is happening. What our ancestors have predicted thousands of years ago. Gnomes are taking over Washington DC! SAVE US ALL!!!!!!
After a huge Jayson Werth Garden Gnome giveaway, gnomes have been growing by the day at Nats Park. Fans are dressing up, wearing beards, wearing gnome hats (this guy even had Jayson Werth tug on his gnome beard). Pretty soon the entire ballpark will be overrun.
A few Nationals fans were dressed up as werewolfs on Tuesday night at Nats Park and were caught on camera. Well it turns out these guys, one dressed in full werewolf outfit with a mask AND a Jayson Werth beard, had a run in with stadium security. Wow they look sort of scary in the following pics:
This is why I never stand out in the on deck circle. Adam LaRoche was batting against the Braves on Monday night and on the first pitch his bat slipped out of his hands. The bat went flying towards the backstop/dugout/on deck circle and crashed into the netting only feet away from teammate Ian Desmond. Here is what that looked like.
