June 8, 2010: It was just two years ago that a hyped pitching phenom named Stephen Strasburg made his first appearance -- and lived up to the hype. His line for the Washington Nationals in a 5-2 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates: 14 strikeouts and no walks in seven innings, with but a two-run homer by Delwyn Young staining the dazzling debut.

No wonder teammates wanted to make Strasburg look like they did in the postgame.

Now for a few more, uh, normal photos from that special night:
