It’s been 15 years since home base was stolen from the Montreal Expos, a franchise that went on to become the Washington Nationals.

On Thursday, the Nationals completed a remarkable postseason run by defeating the heavily-favourited Houston Astros 6-2 in Game 7 of the World Series.

Expos fans were quick to hop on Twitter to celebrate the Nats’ first championship like it were their own.

Coincidently, for the first time since the Expos left, the Nationals sported baby-blue Expos uniforms for one game in July, paying tribute to the team that was gobbled up by America’s capital city.

From thanking the city, the fans, former players, and Youppi!, here’s how Montreal Expos fans have been reacting throughout the Twitterverse as #MontealExpos was trending in Canada in the wake of the Nats’ World Series victory.
