“I already told him I’d like to have somebody with a big, hairy chest sitting next to me,” Davey Johnson said of Mike Rizzo before Friday night’s game.

The implication was that Johnson wanted a big power-hitting type on his bench. Either that, or he likes bears.

Regardless, if I had to guess, I’d probably put money on Matt Stairs having the hairiest chest on the current lineup, which is why it was so fitting that Stairs would wind up as the walk-off hero Friday night.

These being the 2011 Nats, the post-game celebration was suitably merry. If you don’t mind, I’d like to highlight the merriment, in four parts.
