WASHINGTON (WUSA) -- Why did this have to happen on the same day as RGIII's first ever start? This is hilarious.

As the Washington Post's Dan Steinburg points out, this little bout of hazing isn't something new. Last year the team dressed the rookies up as 'Smurfs.'

Possibly more than any other sport, having fun in baseball is necessary to winning games. It's refreshing to see the Nats shrug off Sunday's loss and make each other laugh.

Bryce Harper really seems into it, doesn't he? My bet would be on Steve Lombardozzi as Washington's best gymnast.
