Let Teddy Win!

Video: Taft teams with Pittsburgh racing pierogies to attack fellow presidents

For those who ever wondered whether racing president William Howard Taft was loyal to the home team, any doubt was removed Friday night at Nationals Park.

With the Pittsburgh Pirates in town, Taft missed the start of the fourth inning presidents race, instead waiting near the finish line to wave in an onslaught of racing pierogies from Pittsburgh’s PNC Park.

Taft then sent the interlopers after his fellow presidents, and it wasn’t pretty.

Bacon Burt missed Jefferson, but Sauerkraut Saul was right behind him and managed to take out TJ with a nifty spinning move.

Oliver Onion finished George Washington and Cheese Chester took out Abraham Lincoln, which left Potato Pete, who has a history with Teddy Roosevelt, to knock out his nemesis.

Jalapeño Hannah stayed out of the melee but ushered the traitor Taft across the finish line.

This was the eighth year that the pierogies have visited Nationals Park, but the first time six made the trip. We should expect more antics from the visiting dumplings this weekend.
