The Washington Nationals are giving the Capitals a run for their money when it comes to celebrating a championship. 

The Nationals showed up to Capital One Arena on Sunday to celebrate their World Series title. They were honored on ice before the game, rode shirtless on the ice resurfacer during intermission and partied with the Capitals in the locker room afterward.
