Teddy Roosevelt learned Thursday that Halloween is the one night of the year when a ten foot tall president at your door doesn’t surprise anybody.
The Rough Rider went trick or treating on Thursday night, accompanying young Nats fan Jake Lang and friends through Lang’s Potomac, Maryland neighborhood.
With a little help from Twitter, Lang’s Bryce Harper costume had won the fan vote in the Nationals’ Pic or Treat Halloween Costume Contest, with Teddy as the prize.
“We were far behind in the voting,” said Lang, “then I tweeted Bryce and his sister and they helped. I tweeted Holden on the radio and he helped. My family tweeted and put it on Facebook and my friends voted a lot.”
Teddy kept the spirits high despite a steady rain and a failure by most neighbors to recognize him. Watch as one after another fails to recognize the racing president, until he finally barges in on some Nats fans.
“It was so cool trick or treating with Teddy,” Jake added. I had a great time.”

The 2013 season was one of high expectations for fan favorite racing president Teddy Roosevelt. But things got off on the wrong foot with the introduction of a fifth president, Roosevelt rival William Howard Taft, and it was Memorial Day before Teddy notched his first victory.
Along the way, the presidents were visited by Teddy’s great great grandson Winthrop, HBO’s VEEP Selina Myer, The Bird, The Racing Pierogies, That Cat, a giant cicada, Mr. Kool Aid, the Sharknado, Martha Washington, Sharky, the grounds crew, Teddy’s pet moose Bullee, a rally pigeon, and a dozen other mascots from the DC area.
Here for your pleasure, a finish line view of the presidents race season:
