2009 has been a big year for the Washington Nationals Teddy Roosevelt in the world of social media, as the team has made Teddy its official voice on Facebook and Twitter.
But last night at Nationals Park, it turned out to be Teddy’s downfall.
Teddy had an early lead in the 4th-inning presidents race, then stopped on the outfield warning track to “update his Twitter page.” Those following Teddy26Nats on Twitter saw his update: “Im in the lead! no one can stop me!”
Faster on his fingers than he is on his feet, Teddy did managed to maintain the lead after his Tweet, but then as he hit the home stretch, our #26 stopped to Tweet again: im taking this all the way!!
That’s when Abe passed him for good.
