PHOTO: Adam LaRoche carrying a mountain lion over his shoulders

The Nationals have had a busy offseason so far, acquiring Doug Fister, Jerry Blevins and Nate McLouth to bolster their pitching staff and bench. Bryce Harper has been busy begging for a UFC title belt as well.

First baseman Adam LaRoche, on the other hand, has passed the time by hunting mountain lions. Without a gun either. He uses a bow. Here's a photo of LaRoche carrying a (dead) mountain lion on his shoulders, which the Buck Commander website (I don't really know what that is, but let's roll with it) posted to its Facebook page:

FACT: Adam LaRoche is more of a man than I will ever be.

ANOTHER FACT: It is legal to hunt mountain lions in several states, so LaRoche probably didn't do anything wrong here. Other than push beyond the boundaries of manliness, that is.
