CSN Mid-Atlantic television reporter Michael Jenkins was more than a little upset with the Washington Nationals for blowing it in Game 6 against the Pittsburgh Penguins.
He, and many others, thought the Caps were going to cruise past the Penguins in the second-round matchup, but as we say, “That’s why they play the games.”
So after the soul-crushing 4-3 loss that sent Washington home for good, Jenkins poured himself a drink and drank his way through his segment. Now, we’re pretty sure his employer wouldn’t tolerate actual alcohol being consumed at work, Ron Burgundy style, so we’ll assume he was sipping on a Diet Coke.
That said, we applaud Jenkins for his creative approach to dealing with crushed hopes.
