It would've been nice had the Nats done it by winning. But I'll take this anyway I can. This starts to make up for 1994 for this franchise.

Many years of tears to get to this point. I'm overwhelmed with joy. We Nats fans, especially people on this board, need to take a minute to enjoy it because god know's we've been through hell to get to this point.

Was on the phone with my dad pitch by pitch for Brian McCann's at bat that clinched it for the Nats. Won't ever forget this moment! Go Nats! Can't wait to bring Texas to DC next week for our 1st ever playoff game (as the Nationals that is).

I remember back in 2007 through 2010... My friends would legit laugh in my face when I told them I was a Nationals fan.

Not any more!

Mike Rizzo and the rest of the scouting, player development and player personnel department, thank you. This is awesome.

This is why it's so gratifying. My teenage son would get ridiculed for having Nats bumper stickers on his car.

Who's laughing now, baby!

I went to a World Series game in 2007 in Philly. My buddy rolled me under the bus and said I was a Nats fan. I was treated like a novelty. I don't think I'd get that treatment anymore.

It feels so good, despite the loss, to celebrate in front of the Phillies. freak them.

I was born the years the Expos were last in the playoffs and became a fan since probably '86 or so.  My first post season experience too!  So fricking pumped right now!

That was great.  JZ showed less than zero emotion, if that's possible.  It was funny though.  Gio, Morse, and the bullpen were hilarious.  Was kind of funny seeing HRod just hanging around in the background too.  I'm probably happiest for Zim and Lannan.

I think this is the first team I've ever rooted for that has won its division in my lifetime.

Such is the life of a DC sports fan (minus the Capitals).
