Presidents Race rally signs are here.

Presidents Race sign at Nationals Park.The presidents race rally signs have arrived and they look great!

I promised a photo as soon as the finished product arrived, and here it is. This is not cheap cardboard sign. It’s made of flexible weatherproof vinyl, is printed on both sides, and will easily last through the entire presidents race season. In fact, when you bring it home you can post it in your yard with the enclosed posts.

If you’re wondering how I got this photo, I just had to envision how it will look at Nationals Park, so I took a photo holding up the sign and combined it with this crowd shot from a 2007 Nationals game. Imagine an army of fans holding these up during the presidents race!

Presidents Race Videos

Presidents Race VideosAnnouncing the Presidents Race Videos page.

Nats fans know that the presidents race is superior to all those other racing characters from around Major League Baseball. The theme is uniquely DC, the costumes are outrageous, and I doubt any sausage could ever captivate a city the way loveable Teddy has captured the hearts of Washington Nationals Fans.

Still, it’s hard to appreciate the presidents race if you haven’t seen it.

That’s why I am happy to announce a new section of the site for Presidents Race Videos. Lots of you have taken great videos of the presidents race since it started in 2006. Now I have compiled some of the best of those videos in a new section that has a permanent tab at the top of blog.letteddywin.com.

Today, the presidents race video page features vintage races from the team’s first season, and great moments from last year like Teddy’s zip line entrance on opening day, his various attempts to cheat, and his botched coronation on Teddy Roosevelt bobblehead night.

It’s a living video history of the presidents race. The 2008 section is ready and waiting. If you have any great videos you’d like to add, let me know at teddyroosevelt@letteddywin.com.

Let Teddy Win kids long sleeve jersey

presidents race Let Teddy Win kids long sleeve jerseyHere’s a photo of the new Let Teddy Win jersey that just arrived. My son wore it to school this week and to a fall festival today. He got tons of “great shirt” comments!

This is the one that has the Teddy Roosevelt quote on the back:

Teddy Roosevelt Quote T-Shirt

The quote reads:

Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs even though checkered by failure, then to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat.

How perfect is that?

The jersey is available in sizes for adults or kids.

Honk if you want to Let Teddy Win the Presidents Race

Let Teddy Win License Plate Frame

I added this item to the Let Teddy Win Store just so I could order a couple of them for our cars. They just arrived and I put them on the cars this morning. I got the vinyl Let Teddy Win sign as well and it looks incredible! I will post photos shortly.

Now if you’re driving around DC and you see this, you’ll know who I am :-). Honk and give me a wave if you want Teddy to win the presidents race!

New Item: Let Teddy Win Signs

Presidents Race Rally Sign

I have to say I’m very excited about this new product. Today is the first day it could be ordered and I’ve put it up on letteddywin.com immediately because I know it’s going to be a big hit at Washington Nationals games.  Just imagine waving these during the presidents race!

The sign is 22 inches wide. It is printed on 2 sides and made of flexible weather-resistant vinyl. It includes a metal frame so that you can bring it home from the game and post it in your yard.

I hope you like the design. Of course I ordered the first one myself immediately and will post more photos when it arrives.

New Let Teddy Win Hoodie for Kids

Presidents Race Let Teddy Win Kids Hoodie

Let Teddy Win Kids Hoodie

I just added this new product last week and ordered one immediately for my daughter. I must say it looks great, and she absolutely does not want to take it off. She wore it to bed, and took it to school the next day (even though it was 90 degrees in DC)! I will have to take a photo of her in it for letteddywin.com.

The Let Teddy Win kids hoodie is made of soft, 100% cotton fleece and will be perfect for night games at Nationals Park — especially early in the season.

The Let Teddy Win presidents race store is still a work in progress, but boy am I glad I decided to use cafepress. They are really easy to work with and the merchandise is really of high quality. The direct printing looks good and appears to me as if it will last forever. If I were looking to build a money-making business I might not use them, because they take most of the $$, but I’m just looking to cover my costs and have fun here and promote Teddy to win the presidents race without investing too much money.

Introducing the Official Let Teddy Win TM T-Shirt



Let Teddy Win T-Shirt with Quote (front).

Announcing the first official Let Teddy Win t-shirt, for cheering on Teddy to win the presidents race in the upcoming 2008 season. This and other designs are available at the Let Teddy Win Store.

The quote on the back is by Teddy Roosevelt himself:

Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs even though checkered by failure, then to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat.

More about me: This is of course the first of many posts to come, so I’ll be brief. The I am a huge Washington Nationals fan (and partial season ticket holder) whose son fell in love with the Presidents Race from that day in July, 2006 when big-headed Teddy first came up short. I selected CafePress to create the store because the products are of very high quality (I ordered them myself before putting them up for sale). More info about me and the store are at the
Let Teddy Win About Me page.
