Washington Capitals attend Nationals game with Stanley Cup, mayhem ensues...

Washington’s Capitals enjoyed themselves when they visited Nationals Park to show off the Stanley Cup ... and drink beer.

The Stanley Cup champion Washington Capitals spent their first weekend with the Cup on an extended wine-tasting, if one were to replace wine with copious amounts of hard alcohol and beer.

The tour has taken them around the city — the Caps have been spotted doing everything from frolicking in the fountains in Georgetown to partying it up at an Arlington bar.

However, before they began day-drinking, the Caps started their day with, uh, more day drinking during a game at Nationals Park.

The team entered the ballpark for their first official interviews since Game 5, and then took some photos with the Nats.

After that, Alex Ovechkin led the team on to the field with the cup in hand to throw out the first pitch, which nearly killed a patron of the Delta Sky360 club.

Ovechkin then got a mulligan:

The Caps then retreated to a suite in the upper levels of the stadium, where they randomly raised the Stanley Cup whenever they felt so inclined (because why not) and performed a very drunk rendition of Queen’s “We Are the Champions” in an interview with Dan Kolko.

T.J. Oshie also drank a cup of something or the other through his shirt as the Caps were on the big screen during the seventh inning stretch, which was impressive more than anything.

Unsurprisingly, when Bryce Harper homered later on in the game, the Cup made an appearance.

The team stayed through the rest of the game and watched the Nationals close out a 7-5 win.
