Nationals mascot Screech has no shame, changes into pajamas after multiple rain delays

Although the Nationals beat the Mets, 5-0, on Tuesday night, the game featured two rain delays -- totaling two hours and 20 minutes. While most fans and players stuck it out, continuing to cheer and play before and after the stoppages in action, Nats mascot Screech decided it was past his bedtime. So in the eighth inning, he did what all of us think about doing, but never have the courage to do on nights we're working late: He changed into his pajamas. 

Good for you, Screech. You're a braver, more self-aware soul than we'll ever be. Sleep well. And please, tell Jonathan Papelbon he's not Corey Hart.
