Washington Nationals pitcher Doug Fister was feeling particularly generous on Christmas Eve, so he decided to buy Starbucks for everyone. 

Fister posted a barcode on his Twitter page and told followers to have a Starbucks barista scan the barcode, which would give them a free cup of coffee. He also cautioned potential Grinches to only use the barcode once. 

Fister made $7.2 million in 2014, so as long as everyone stays away from Venti-sized coffees, he shouldn't have too big an issue footing the bill.
