GIF: Teddy Roosevelt Clobbers Racing Presidents with “Rally Mitt”

Teddy Roosevelt clobbers Jefferson Nationals presidents raceWearing a protective mitt apparently borrowed from Bryce Harper, Teddy Roosevelt ambushed his fellow racing presidents at the finish line of Sunday’s presidents race at Nationals Park.

After using the mitt to defeat Sharknado Abe the night before, Teddy tweeted a message of thanks to Bryce Harper. Harper and Ryan Zimmerman have been wearing the mitts when running the bases as they recover from hand injuries.

Here’s the highlight GIF, with slo-mo enhancements. Full sound video below.

Video: Abe Lincoln turns into Sharknado, attacks fellow presidents

Abe Lincoln as the SharknadoTeddy Roosevelt Wins the Presidents RaceAfter watching the Sharknado disrupt the presidents race for the last two nights, Abraham Lincoln got a little inspiration.

When race time came Saturday night at Nationals Park, The Great Emancipator emerged from the Nationals’ bullpen wearing his own makeshift Sharknado costume.

“Honest” Abe went on the attack, spinning his way through Washington, Jefferson, and Taft, but Teddy Roosevelt was waiting with a weapon of his own — a Rally Mitt!

Teddy swatted Lincoln to the ground, and raced ahead for the victory.

2 Sharknados Nationals Presidents raceFor the second straight night, Sharknado returned to Nationals Park, and this time attacked the racing presidents from both directions.

Sharknado 1 met the presidents on the warning track, knocking Teddy back into the pack. Only Abe Lincoln remained on his feet, but then Sharknado 2 arrived from the rear and leveled the Great Emancipator.

Jefferson recovered to his feet and was unchallenged for the win.

Video: Sharknado attacks Teddy Roosevelt

Followers of the Washington Nationals racing presidents should not have been surprised by what was waiting in Nationals Racing President Teddy Roosevelt Sharknadostore for Teddy Roosevelt Thursday night at Nationals Park.

The debut Wednesday of the sequel Sharknado 2: The Second One on the SyFy Network portended the return of Teddy’s nemesis Sharknado, who made four appearances at Nationals Park during the 2013 season.

Roosevelt passed his fellow presidents early in Thursday’s race, but a spinning Sharknado was waiting to take him down with a flying leap. Abe Lincoln mopped up for the win.

GIF: Teddy Roosevelt scares MLB with astronaut costume

Racing president Teddy Roosevelt celebrated the 45th anniversary of the Apollo moon landing Sunday at Nationals Park by donning a makeshift astronaut helmet fashioned from tinfoil.

The tactic helped propel Teddy to his 16th victory and an unprecedented July lead in the presidents race standings, but it apparently scared the folks at Major League Baseball, who tweeted this GIF:

For the record, it was the fourth time Roosevelt has attempted the astronaut helmet, but the first time he’s won while wearing it.

Video: Teddy goes after George Washington, who returns the favor

It was not Teddy’s finest hour.

In the first presidents race after the All Star break, Teddy Roosevelt came out swinging Friday night at Nationals Park, turning on his fellow presidents before they even finished coming out of the centerfield gate.

The Rough Rider shoved George Washington to the ground, but failed to down his other competitors, backpedaling as Thomas Jefferson slipped by him on the warning track.

Teddy chased Jefferson for the length of the race, and cut the outfield corner to try to catch up, but Washington, who had recovered early, caught up to the Bull Moose and exacted his revenge.

It should be a fun second half of the season.
