Jim Riggleman made a shocking life decision to resign as manager of the Washington Nationals on Wednesday because of a contract dispute. It's the kind of decision where Riggleman might have been thinking less rationally than he would have liked, but will earn him respect by his peers.

But anytime someone makes a hard decision like that, they need to do something to blow off steam. So here is Riggleman apparently downing drinks with some women at Caddies in Bethesda. It evokes memories of when Michael Jordan dropped into a bar and drank all night after the Wizards cut him loose in 2003. Except, Riggleman isn't Michael Jordan, and he made an even ballsier decision.

Who knows whether Riggleman was recounting the whole story to strangers at the bar. Maybe he just wanted to get away, or maybe he wanted someone to talk to about it all. Either way, alcohol is always a good way to ease the pain.
