On Sunday, George Washington donned
bull horns and rammed into Thomas Jefferson, sending him diving over the railing (and practically into a fan holding a Let Teddy Win sign).
We didn’t get our usual video from Sunday’s contest, but we thought we’d provide the next best thing.
Highlights from Sunday’s MASN game broadcast:

The annual Running of the Bulls takes place this weekend in Pamplona, Spain, and on Sunday at Nationals Park, the Nationals’ racing presidents paid tribute by strapping horns onto George Washington, who chased Tom, Abe, and Teddy across the outfield during the 4th-inning presidents race.
Thomas Jefferson broke away for the early lead, but couldn’t escape Washington’s charge.
After passing Abe and Teddy, the father of our country tucked his horns and caught up to Jefferson, flipping the Sage of Monticello head first into the Section 133 stands before claiming the victory. The move puts George within two of Abe in the standings heading into the All Star break.
Sunday was Jewish Community Day at Nationals Park, and throughout the game, the HD scoreboard featured famous jewish baseball players through history. Klezmer recording artists The Alexandria Kleztet performed in the centerfield plaza before the game.
Finally, we have to give a nod to these guys who formed their own 5-man cheering section along the first baseline. The leprechaun, angel, Easter Bunny, native American, and Uncle Sam got together to send a simple message: Every Nationals win should be a National Holiday.
Well done, gentlemen.
