Teddy Roosevelt scratched, misses presidents race with pulled hamstring

For the second time this month, Teddy Roosevelt was scratched from the Washington Nationals presidents race due to a mysterious pre-game injury.

After watching their team give up seven runs to the Los Angeles Dodgers in the top of the 4th inning, fans at Nationals Park were looking for something positive from the mid-inning presidents race.

Teddy Roosevelt was scratched from the Washington Nationals presidents race with a pulled hamstring.Sadly, Teddy fans learned they had nothing to cheer for when it was announced that he would not be racing because he was “still nursing a hamstring injury.” The news was a surprise, given that the presidents had not raced since the Nats’ last home game on September 10.

With only three presidents racing, George Washington came from behind to claim victory.

Teddy was also scratched mysteriously on September 5, but returned the next night. Let’s hope his return is just as speedy this time.

  1. Enough is enough already. This is worse than waterboarding. The race is a sham anyway. It’s a bunch of people in mascot costumes. Let Teddy win already. What the F is wrong with these people?
