This meme is so perfect, even McKayla Maroney has to be somewhat impressed. 

The Washington Nationals enjoyed quite the momentous occasion on Thursday night, after their slugger, Jayson Werth, slammed a walk-off home run to force Game 5 Friday. 

At the end of the celebration trot, Werth jumped into a whole new level of fame: the Internet meme. 

You only need to visit JWerth Riding Things to see how priceless this can be. 

This is more than just a random moment that fits well as Photoshop fodder, because Werth has been through some down times in Washington. 

If you want to relive all that Werth has been through, Adam Kilgore of The Washington Post does a great job. 

A $126 million man who hit .232 last season saved his team's season. Instead of the boos he has heard in the past, he was hearing euphoric cheers. 

His fame isn't relegated to mere memes, as a local baker made sure his likeness was celebrated in the form of cupcakes. 

The images from the meme may seem absurd, but they fit the moment perfectly. 

I can't wait to see what happens if the slugger gets this team into the World Series.
