The Washington Capitals brought the Stanley Cup to Nats Park for the Washington Nationals’ game against the San Francisco Giants on Saturday, and it was quite a scene.

Things began with Conn Smythe Trophy winner Alex Ovechkin walking out with the Stanley Cup and throwing out the first pitch. Well, first pitches. The initial first pitch went to the backstop, so he got a second try.

During the game, Ovechkin was in a suite with his teammates and kept holding up the Stanley Cup for the rest of the stadium to see.


And then this amazing interview, which included Ovechkin and his drunk teammates singing “We are the Champions.”

Life has never been better for Ovi and the Caps.
