Teddy imitates Nats bullpen and collapses

Washington Nationals racing president Teddy Roosevelt collapsesToday at Nationals Park, Teddy Roosevelt did a nice impression of the home team Washington Nationals, staking a big lead and giving his cheering fans much hope, only to collapse in the home stretch.

For the home team, the collapse came at the hands of the Philadelphia Phillies, who scored the game-tying and go-ahead runs on an 8th-inning fielding error by second baseman Anderson Hernandez.

After taking a seemingly insurmountable lead out of the outfield turn, Teddy hit the home stretch, stopped and keeled over.

With Teddy on his knees and members of the Nat Pack rushing to his aid, George, Tom and Abe raced by, with Abe narrowly claiming the victory.

Stan Kasten with Mayor of Nats Town Jeff and Colleen ShermanCongratulations to season ticket holders Jeff and Colleen Sherman, who were honored today as the “Mayors of Nats Town.” Jeff and Colleen (and their fabulous monkey) never miss a game in section 128, and are great friends of the Let Teddy Win blog.

A well deserved honor!

  1. Thank you for helping us capture our special day with your wonderful pictures!

  2. Update: I was stunned to learn that the error was charged to the pitcher Jesus Colome. There’s some major injustice. Lesson: duck when the ball comes your way and you won’t get charged with any errors.
