WASHINGTON, DC. - This calendar year, Washington’s professional sports teams accomplished exactly what we’ve grown used to: mediocrity (Wizards) or flashes of brilliance followed by getting depressingly humbled early in the postseason (basically everyone else).

To be fair, maybe 2016 was a notch above ordinary. The Redskins, Capitals, and Nationals all won their respective divisions, with the hockey and baseball teams favored to make deep runs into the playoffs. But then, of course, DC sports happened.

And even though we didn’t break our miserably long championship drought, there was still a lot to be proud of. Here are the some of DC’s most exhilarating sports moments on the year.
