Nationals announce Teddy giveaways for final homestand

With the Let Teddy Win movement becoming national news, the Nationals are ironically trying to jump on the bandwagon.

Washington Nationals Teddy RooseveltThe Nationals social media team introduced the #Teddyin2012 hashtag, implying that they somehow want to see Teddy win, along with a new Teddy-focused page on Nationals.com.

The page prominently features the quote from Teddy’s “Man in the Arena” speech that has been featured on Let Teddy Win t-shirts and was quoted by Arizona Senator John McCain in the recent Ken Burns video that has been running on various ESPN shows this week.

The team also announced that fans attending next week’s final homestand of the season October 1-3 will receive a Teddy-themed giveaway.

The first 20,000 fans On Monday October 1st will receive Eye Black Strips (“Teddy” for one eye and “26” for the other). On Tuesday the 2nd, it’s Teddy bumper stickers for the first 20,000 fans, and on fan appreciation day Wednesday the 3rd, it’s Teddy pins for the first 20,000 fans.

I think I need at least 40 sets of those eye black strips.

Canine Teddy fan wins Fan of the Game at Pups in the Park

If the 2012 elections were held today, Teddy Roosevelt has an early “leg up” on the canine vote.

Cachucha took the pre-game parade seriously, sporting an elaborate “float” that included a Teddy Roosevelt bobblehead doll mounted on her back.

“She was really hoping her float would give him an edge for a win,” said Diaz.

Sadly, the pups simply proved to be a distraction for Roosevelt, but Cachucha got a consolation prize: She was featured on the HD scoreboard and voted fan of the game by the Nationals Park crowd.

“Teddy has always been her favorite,” added Diaz. “If she could wear a monocle, she would.”

With three more Pups in the Park promotions scheduled for this summer, perhaps Cachucha can start a whole canine cheering section for our favorite president.

…and if a float isn’t your dog’s thing, there’s always the Let Teddy Win T-Shirt for dogs (above).

Just in time for Valentine’s Day

Let Teddy Win Womens Boy Briefs for Valentines DayAs the baseball season nears, I’ve been checking out the new items over at Cafepress to add to the Let Teddy Win collection. There are new mugs, mousepads, and the like, but I had to laugh when I saw these new women’s boy briefs. Seemed like the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for those Nats fans with more than a little fondness for the original Rough Rider…

Honk if you love Teddy Roosevelt

I hope you enjoyed Teddy Roosevelt’s birthday as much as I did. Unlike last year’s big 150th birthday bash, this year was a little quieter for our favorite #26.

However, the family did give me a surprise birthday present this week in the form of new vanity plates.

So remember if you see me driving around the DC area: Honk if you love Teddy!

Visions of Victory for Teddy

Presidents Race on Brian Mosley's Lawn

Flickr user Brian Mosley has set up a little inspirational image for our beloved 26th president as he prepares for the 2008 presidents race campaign.

Brian, a self-proclaimed “overnight fan” of Teddy Roosevelt and the presidents race, read about the Let Teddy Win! campaign on DCist, picked himself up a presidents race rally sign, and then got out his camera.

Brian’s housemate has a collection of racing president bobblehead dolls from the 2007 season. As you can see by the photo, Brian set up an inspirational presidents race display in his yard under the rally sign, with Teddy leaving Tom, George, and Abe in the dust as he crosses the finish line. The photo appeared on flickr yesterday.

Teddy, are you paying attention? Visualize success!
