Every year, both parties field baseball teams and crack out a (very slow) seven innings in front of a delighted, wonky audience.
17. Congressional staffers pre-game in their best baseball SWAG.
16. And fuel their partisan rage with Summer Shandy.
Some of them even double fist the Shandy for maximum effect.
15. You get to see congressmen bro out FULL SPEED.
14. You get amazing Republican or Democrat SWAG.
And even the Capitol Police cannot resist the SWAG.
But will THROW YOU SHADE if you take their photo.
13. Nancy Pelosi is a HUGE baseball fan.
She watched EVERY play and told BuzzFeed she wanted to win an “ecclesiastical, monumental victory” against the Republicans.
Pelosi cheered each member as they went up to bat and could be heard throughout the entire section. TEAM SPIRIT NANCY!
12. The stadium divides into political cheering sections that are actually quite loud and enthusiastic.
Must be the Shandy.
