Thursday’s Nats game started before noon, which was unusual. The early start time, and the holiday occasion, and the Neil Diamond appearance, and the stars-and-stripes apparel on the field all inspired Nats fans to appear even weirder than usual.
Among the celebrants included someone in a Seahawks jersey, someone in a Bullets jersey, someone in a Jackie Robinson jersey, at least three kids who mixed Cowboys logos with D.C. sports apparel, someone with a Libyan flag, someone with a poorly spelled “Nattitude” jersey, and someone in a clownquestionbro jersey.
All in all, a pretty strong showing by Washingtonians. Or whatever planet these people came from.
