Let Teddy Win!

Teddy distracted by a juggling clown

The crowd at Nationals Park still had something to cheer about during Saturday’s 4th inning presidents race. The Nats had a big lead, and their second consecutive blown save extra innings loss to the Florida Marlins would not unfold for another 2 hours.

For Teddy fans, Saturday’s presidents race was equally frustrating for Teddy Roosevelt’s rooters. After running a tight race the night before, Teddy barely got out of the gate Saturday before being distracted by a clown who appeared along the warning track. As the clown dropped his pants and juggled rings, Teddy pranced and clapped, while Abe paced the field to take the tape.
