The crowd at Nationals Park wasn’t paying too much attention during Saturday’s presidents race at Nationals Park.
Teddy Roosevelt took an early lead, but Abraham Lincoln, upset about falling to 3rd place in the presidents race standings, took a cue from Nyjer Morgan and threw a little fit of his own.
After slamming Tom into the stands, he pranced across the finish line and climbed into the crowd to celebrate.
For the first time since Nationals Park opened, the Orioles mascot “The Bird” failed to make an appearance for the interleague race.
His Nationals counterpart Screech, who allegedly judges the presidents race, was a no show himself, failing once again to disqualify “Honest” Abe despite blatant cheating.
