Nationals and Rockies engage in National Anthem standoff

New, comments

The Nationals won because it's literally their anthem.

Pre-game standoffs have happened before. Before the 2013 NLCS, Scott Van Slyke acted like a couple of maroons and hung out on the field, and bless them for it.

This, then, is something of a cover song. But it's a pretty good cover song.

The players in question are Aaron Barrett and Brandon Barnes, and if you stay to the end, you can see a pretty good payoff.  This isn't King Kong vs. Godzilla; there's a clear winner.

I'm starting to think baseball players are a bunch of idiots, everyone. Will investigate further and report back.
