"Now it is our turn to deliver a parade of the ages to celebrate our Nats".

"We've been dating for four years and she's probably been waiting for me to propose for three-and-a-half of those years", said Payne, who said he was shaking during the entire Metro ride downtown.

China lifts ban on Canadian beef and pork exports
In the days that followed, China detained two Canadians - Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor - on espionage allegations. Good news for Canadian farmers today: Canadian pork and beef exports to China will resume.

Even before Doolittle's decision, this year's World Series had delved into politics. But he also considered how little time these Nationals have left together.

Washington D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser announced the parade on Wednesday following the team's victory. They'll next convene for reunions down the line.

Before publicizing his decision, Doolittle looked up how Braden Holtby and Chris Long discussed their choice to not attend championship ceremonies at the White House.

Since President Donald Trump took office, a number of professional athletes have boycotted their team's visit to the White House as part of their championship celebration, and it appears that trend will continue. But in a city where partisan politics has always been the dominant sport, Monday's visit has itself taken a political turn.

China's Xi reiterates support for embattled HK leader Carrie Lam
But Carrie Lam could still be sacked within one year or during Beijing's annual legislative session in March, the expert said. In August, thousands of civil servants defied a government warning to remain politically neutral and took to the streets.

Doolittle and his team were all invited to the White House to celebrate their World Series win last week.
