Jordan McRae poked fun at teammate Bradley Beal, who was rooting for his hometown Cardinals, not the Nationals.
Aye @RealDealBeal23 you got a broom 🧹 I can borrow— Jordan McRae (@JordyMac52) October 16, 2019
It was too soon for Beal.
I’m hurt right now https://t.co/yQiK6lk9sz— Bradley Beal (@RealDealBeal23) October 16, 2019
But he came around.
Some owner-to-owner love.

Their neighbors from the other side of South Capitol Street were plenty excited.
The Capitals, one of only three professional teams from the area to win a championship this century, know from experience what this feels like.
So do their players.
And their former players.
The Mystics are fresh off their own championship.
Coach knows what's up.
Awesome win!! Congratulations @Nationals On to the World Series. Thanks for having us be a part of your great evening!! Bring it home!— Mike Thibault (@coachthibault) October 16, 2019
The newest D.C. franchise won't get a shot to win a championship of their own until 2020, but they're around to congratulate the Nationals at having a shot at winning one now.
This is sort of a congratulations. Partial credit for Pep!
The one-win Redskins won't be advancing very far this season, but they're still happy for the Nationals.
Derrius Guice was at the game!
Long snappers are people too!
What a freakin game, series, season! Holy shit this damn team doesn’t quit. Congrats @Nationals on your first trip to the World Series!— Nick Sundberg (@NickSundberg) October 16, 2019
Former Redskins are pumped too.

Even the Terps are pumped for the hometown squad for repping the DMV.
The Spirit are in the spirit!
