The parade for the World Series champion Washington Nationals will take place in DC this afternoon, and a huge crowd is expected:
Tens of thousands of fans are expected at a parade Saturday to celebrate the Washington Nationals, who won a nail-biting, come-from-behind victory against the Houston Astros in Game 7 to clinch the World Series. https://t.co/ySzhdoBXFB

Meanwhile, Bill Kristol is hoping the team owner puts some of the focus on politics:
How great would it be if, at this afternoon's celebration on the Mall, Ted Lerner announced that the Nationals had decided as a team to respectfully decline President Trump's invitation to the White House?

Apparently everything has to be about Trump these days.
How great would it be if nothing political was brought up? Sports=good politics=bad. Don't ruin good things with politics. https://t.co/TYCgZuRHZm

How great would it be if some people could just get over losing in 2016. https://t.co/sgVXyMbunj

That would be “great.”
Your definition of “great” is really weird. You didn’t attempt to drive this much division & animosity when Obama was in office.
Hope the checks they are writing you are worth it.

You think that would be “great?”

So everything in America should be about Trump, or in your case Trump-hating. Because everyone in America is supposed to hate Trump as much as you do. And if they don’t, they should be shamed to act as if they do. https://t.co/Hpvtewt2o3

Maybe Kristol will be happy to know that at least one Nationals player won’t be going to the White House:
"At the end of the day, as much as I wanted to be there with my teammates… I can’t do it."
