Teddy Roosevelt’s absence didn’t prevent the Washington Nationals’ other racing presidents from engaging in some antics during Thursday night’s presidents race at Nationals Park.
With TR still out getting treatment for an injury, the three remaining presidents ran a tight race last night — that is, until they hit the home stretch. That’s when George Washington practically jumped on top of Abe Lincoln to tackle him to the ground in foul territory.
Clearly George gives revenge against Abe a higher priority than maintaining his lead over Jefferson for 2nd place in the standings.
Meanwhile, the Nationals remain mum about the treatment for Teddy’s injury, and with each absence, the rumor mill buzzes more loudly. We hear the frame that holds up Teddy’s head is broken. Let’s hope for the fans’ sake that they get him back in shape quickly — or that Teddy learns to play through the pain!
