Teddy Roosevelt flattens Abraham Lincoln with a right hook

Teddy Roosevelt had a choice to make Thursday night at Nationals Park.

Our 26th president took a healthy lead into the home stretch of the 4th-inning presidents race. With a 20-yard lead over Abraham Lincoln, Teddy had nothing but daylight between himself and a first-ever presidents race victory.

too tempting a spot for an ambush.

With his chief rival closing in from behind, Teddy stopped, turned, and cold-cocked Abe Lincoln with a right hook that sent the Great Emancipator spinning.

It was a double-defeat for Lincoln, who got to his feet in time to watch Thomas Jefferson waltz across the finish line,
and into a tie with Abe for first place in the season standings.
