The Washington Nationals, who were originally the Montreal Expos, advanced to the World Series for the first time after sweeping away the St. Louis Cardinals. A team from Washington, one of which became the Minnesota Twins in 1961 and then another which became the Texas Rangers in 1972, is in the World Series for the first time since 1933. The last time a team from D.C. won the World Series was in 1924, the year Calvin Coolidge was elected president. In the NFL, Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey, who was asking for a trade, got his wish and is now a Los Angeles Ram.
