Teddy ambushes sausages, fork & knife in hand

The Nationals’ racing presidents called on Teddy Roosevelt to complete their 3-game mockery of Milwaukee’s racing sausages on Sunday at Nationals Park.

When the 4th-inning presidents race began, the “Un-Racing Sausages” were once again on the field with the presidents, and were spotted a big lead over George, Tom, and Abe; but as they rounded the right field corner, they saw Teddy Roosevelt waiting in ambush, wearing a bib, knife and fork in hand.

The Rough Rider knocked down each of the sausages in succession, finally taking “Choriz-No” to the ground with a full body slam.

As is so often the case, Abe was right behind to steal the glory, and his 3rd victory of the young season.

Brewers and their sausages get pummelled at Nationals Park

The sun was shining on Nationals Park today as 18,673 fans watched the home team pummel the Milwaukee Brewers with near-flawless pitching, outstanding defense, heads-up baserunning, timely hitting, and yes, a little presidential butt-kicking too.

The Nationals continued to mock the Brewers’ famous racing sausages with a relay race between the racing presidents and the “un-racing sausages” — cardboard facsimilies created by the Nats mascot team when the Brewers refused to bring the real racing dogs to DC.

Tom teamed with George and Teddy teamed with Abe as the presidents took on each other — and the sausages.

In the outfield leg, George and Teddy tackled “Un-Talian Sausage” and “Not-Wurst” before handing off to anchors Abe and Tom, who promptly dispatched “Not-Dog” and “No-Lish Sausage”; leaving a 5th sausage, “Choriz-No,” to run for his life. Abe chased down the final sausage and tackled him to the ground, giving Tom a clear path to victory and a tie for first place in the season standings.

“Un-Racing Sausages” Return to Nationals Park

The Un-Racing Sausages are back.

Un-racing sausages mock the Milwaukee Brewers at Nationals ParkThe Nats kicked off a long homestand Friday with a the first of a 3-game series against the Milwaukee Brewers, and once again, the team long-known for its famous sausage race refused to bring its racing mascots to town to accept a challenge from our own racing presidents.

So, as they did last August, the Nationals shined a spotlight on Milwaukee’s negative response by bringing out the “un-racing sausages” — fake mascots with names like “Un-talian sausage,” “No-Lish Sausage,” “Not-Dog,” “Not-Wurst,” and “Choriz-No.”

The presidents race was competitive to the finish, when Abe Lincoln pulled away then used his body as a bowling ball to knock down the sausages, who were waiting behind the finish line.

A Washington Post “Closer Inspection” of the Nats’ presidents race

If you thought you knew all there was to know about the Nats’ racing presidents, Kris Coronado at the Washington Post Magazine this week features a “Closer Inspection” of our Rushmore favorites.

The interview with Nationals Entertainment Coordinator Tom Davis reveals even a few details we didn’t have on our presidents race facts page. For example, did you know that Teddy’s #26 jersey is made from the same Majestic Performance Apparel COOL BASE polyester wicking fabric that the players wear?

A worthy read for any presidents race fan. Thanks to both Kris and Tom for the nod to LetTeddyWin.com.
