Let Teddy Win!

Video: Did Teddy give up at the finish?

Teddy Roosevelt seemed to have victory in hand Sunday at Nationals Park.

In one of his more inspired races, #26 overcame a bad start, working his way to the front of the pack with a burst of speed around the right field corner.

Teddy had the upper hand in one of the tightest presidential finishing packs ever, but he seemed to pull up at the end, taking a crooked angle towards the finish line as George barely edged Abe in a photo finish.

After seeminly handing the race to Washington, Teddy tweeted “This is your dayyyy….George!” Hardly the rallying cry Teddy’s fans are looking for.
