Happy Thursday, everybody! According to "Bertha," a barista at my local Starbucks, it's the spookiest day of the year... ๐Ÿ’€

Now, as some of you may recall, I'm not a huge fan of dressing up for Halloween. But I'm making an exception this year:

shareImage-1572527888

Today, I'm dressing up as a Washington Nationals fan who is completely exhausted and woefully under-caffeinated, BECAUSE WE WON THE WORLD SERIES LAST NIGHT, AND I HAVE SO MANY FEELINGS! 

Ahem.

You'll have to forgive me. As a Washington, D.C., native, my grandfather's old Washington Senators scorecards are one of my most prized possessions. I also remember when Ryan Zimmerman was our first-ever draft pick, after the team moved from Montreal before the 2005 season. 

That said, if you had told me after our not-so-hot 19-31 start this season that we would end October as World Series champions, I would have thought you were out of your mind. 

But our ridiculously lovable team โ€” with an absurdly catchy child's bop as our unofficial anthem โ€” pulled off the impossible in a World Series for the ages. Where neither team won at home, and it all came down to a nail-biting game seven in Houston.

As someone who recently turned 37 years old (and increased the font size on her phone yesterday), one of my favorite tidbits about our recently-anointed World Series champs is that we have the oldest team in Major League Baseball.

That's right, fellow kids. Ancient fossils we may be, but folks in their mid-to-late 30s and early 40s can still get stuff done. 

So, in honor of the Washington Nationals officially being the best at baseball for right now, I'm dedicating this issue of THE LATEST to content that only features the best โ€” the best insights, best tips, and best examples โ€” so you can be the best at what you do.
