Video: Teddy shows promise but comes up short in first playoff-era presidents race

Teddy Roosevelt Looking GoodTeddy Roosevelt Loses“Look at the running of Teddy Roosevelt,” Bob Carpenter advised viewers on Friday night’s MASN broadcast.

“He’s either dropped a few lbs., been training seriously, or a combination of the two because  I’ve never seen him run this well.”

“He’s training for something,” added color commentator F.P. Santangelo.  “He’s on a mission.”

With Arizona Senator John McCain in the Nationals Park stands for the first time since calling for a congressional investigation into the presidents race on ESPN’s E:60, Teddy came up just short in his first bid to taste presidents victory of the Nationals’ post-playoff-clinching era.

With the Brewers in town for the only time this season, Friday’s race was also notable for the absence of the “un-racing sausages.”  The cardboard replicas have been a fixture at Nationals Park since Milwaukee first declined to bring the real racing sausages to DC in 2008.

Of course, after Teddy got a chance to clobber the real thing at this year’s All-Star game, perhaps the cardboard version just doesn’t make the cut.
