While nobody expects to see a Washington team in the Super Bowl anytime soon, that doesn't mean there won't be a DMV team represented during the Big Game next Sunday.

No, it won't be the Redskins, but the World Series Champion Washington Nationals.

Budweiser, sans the Clydesdales in this version, have released a first look at their Super Bowl LIV ad and the Nats are featured prominently. 

In their message about "Typical Americans," Anthony Rendon is shown hoisting the Commissioner's Trophy as he is sprayed with beer after the Nats won Game 7 in Houston.

"Typical Americans, always celebrating with their typical American beer," the ad reads.

The Nationals celebration is spliced between images of the USWNT celebrating their World Cup win over the summer in a beer shower.

Long may this tradition continue?
