  1. is it appropriate for fans to endeavor to assist in “letting teddy win,” by doing things like tying other presidents’ shoelaces together, setting up confusing road signs, or devising other implements of sabotage?

  2. Don’t ask, don’t tell, I always say. Just remember that Teddy’s been disqualified before, so don’t get caught!

  3. Shouldn’t the standings include the full results (2nd, 3rd, 4th, DQ, DNF, etc)?

  4. danj, I would happily publish such results if I had help collecting the information from at least a couple of full season ticket holders. I wouldn’t want to list such statistics if I had gaps in the season. Today I can update the W-L standings without knowing for sure that I can be at and videotape every race.

    If you’d like to help collect such info, let me know!

  5. I was at one game during that July 2006 homestand against the Cubs, and Teddy won. He totally cheated — came out of nowhere with a golf cart — but he won the race. (That said, I don’t know if that resulted in a DQ.) Three photos from that game:

    And They're Off...
    Walk Softly and Carry a Big Golf Cart
    Victory Is Mine

  6. Those are great photos. I wish I had video of that race for the presidents race videos page because it was the first time Teddy tried to cheat (and yes it was the first time he was disqualified)! I have added one of your great photos to the presidents race facts page (with a link to your photostream).

  7. […] up losing! >:/ (He’s my favorite President for those of you who don’t know)  Hahah, check out the Race Standings.  They even had this campaign to let him win, with Teddy Roosevelt ‘08 signs!  I LOVE […]

  8. I have a video of the Presidents race from August 15th I recorded it with my digital camera

  9. […] Abraham Lincoln was last years champion by a substantial margin and Teddy was always the hard luck loser with nothing to show but a goose egg for 2008. For more Presidential Race statistics visit here […]

  10. This lovable loser stuff has to stop. Teddy don’t win, Nats don’t win……Coincidence??…..I think not.

  11. […] joke in Washington, D.C. — no, not that one — that Teddy Roosevelt never, ever wins the mascot Presidents Race at Nationals […]

  14. […] Teddy has never won the presidents race. […]

  15. I love the site, and think this is awesome.

    You need to update this page, however…the President’s Race Highlights says 2010, not 2011.

    Keep it up!

  17. teddy was supposed to win today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    dear presidents race fan when do you think teddy will win?

  18. The Nationals have made it clear. It ain’t gonna happen without some kind of intervention. We need a runner to go rogue.

  19. […] to follow, even if I am 2,880 miles away from Nats Park. Now if only Teddy Roosevelt could notch a win in the mascot run…   If you enjoyed this article, please consider sharing […]

  20. yes i agree a runner needs to go rouge

  21. Folks — with respect, you need to know that Teddy is NEVER going to win this race. Too many things going against it.

    First of all, is TR himself. Several times, I’ve seen Teddy in the lead, then veer into the stands to talk with some voter who beckoned to him — irresistible to any politician. Another time he wanted a hot dog. Although a great hunter and outdoorsman, he is kind of clumsy. He has tripped over bats, tarps, gloves — and once over nothing. A blade of grass, I think.

    Second, as long as great Americans like George Washington and Abraham Lincoln trip him … shove him aside …ellbow past him .. step on his heels — he cannot win. Once, the noble Thomas Jefferson pulled Teddy down from behind by the collar! In football, it would be a personal foul. In politics, all’s fair.

    TR Fans — Teddy Roosevelt will simply NEVER win this race. Between his own varying attentions, and his surprisingly less than scrupulous opponents, he simply can’t.

    Ask Victoria’s Secret to sell full-coverage khaki jump suits … ask the birds to fly backward … ask the Man in the Moon to kiss the Sun … ask Barry Obama to be responsible, truthful, and fair – and to take responsibility for a 16 Trillion Dollar Deficit … but don’t ever expect Theodore Roosevelt to win that foot race at Nationals Park. The Laws of Nature, Physics, and Politics just won’t have it!


  22. TEDDY WON!!!

  23. One great aspect about the President’s Race, besides showing icons of this great country cheating and winning by pushing downing the other guy (you know, getting ahead by any means – – something we need to teach the children), is it adds in a big way to the carnival atmosphere of Nationals Park. Baseball can only survive by offering more than baseball. The 7th inning stretch needs to include a tractor pull in center field.

  24. […] Lincoln lost Best Picture at the Oscars, and now he has yet to win a president’s race in 23 tries, falling behind even notorious racing loser Teddy Roosevelt and newcomer Taft. The Nationals’ […]

  25. How is it that perhaps the most physically fit and vigorous president ever to have held office is tied for last? And the single fattest president is tied with him!?!

  26. Can someone please tell me what the song is they play after Abe wins a race? Thank you.

What do you think?
