VIDEO: Max Scherzer Pulls Funny Swap During Puck Drop Before Capitals-Rangers Game

While the Washington Nationals await the winner of the Astros-Yankees ALCS matchup to see who they will square off against in the World Series, the first in franchise history, club ace Max Scherzer is spending his time supporting his beloved Washington Capitals. The three-time Cy Young was scheduled to participate in the ceremonial puck drop ahead of the Caps Friday night clash against the Rangers. As expected, he went through with the invitation, BUT he bamboozled the Capital One Arena crowd by swapping the rubber puck with a baseball at center ice.

Would you expect anything less from the elegant enigma that is Mad Max?

It seems like every time Scherzer has made news in October he's been further cementing his status as a D.C. legend, and that continued on Friday, only this time he wasn't spinning a gem on the diamond.
