Video: Teddy Roosevelt speaks softly and carries a big popsicle

Presidents race teddy Roosevelt Rocket pop popsiclePresidents race Nationals Teddy Roosevelt Rocket pop Big popsicleThe long-awaited warm weather finally arrived at Nationals Park for Memorial Day Weekend, and so Saturday night at Nationals Park, racing president Teddy Roosevelt decided to offer some relief to the crowd.

As the fourth inning race began, Teddy skipped the starting gate, and appeared instead along the first base line, tossing frozen popsicles into the crowd in section 134.

As Roosevelt’s fellow presidents approached the home stretch, Teddy retrieved a giant Rocket Pop from the stands and took a big swing at the oncoming pack.

The group hit the ground and Teddy executed a “bat flip” of the Rocket Pop before turning and stealing the win.
