Saying that Mets fans were happy to see the Nationals lose is an understatement. The thought alone of both the Yankees and Nats going on to the LCS drove Mets fans to the brink of despair, and the relief that this didn't become a reality is a common feeling amongst Mets fans.
Naturally, Mets fans didn't fail when providing their reactions to the Nationals losing. It was a beautiful thing to be in the midst of on Twitter right after Bryce Harper struck out for the final out of Game 5, or in my case, a beautiful thing to wake up to, as I'm currently writing this while out of the country.
To give you just a glimpse at some of the gems...

No, the Mets didn't make it to the playoffs, so cue all of the "you shouldn't be talking" responses from Nats fans. But from personal experience with Nats fans, if roles were reversed, they'd be doing the same thing and basking in the same glory.
