Video: George Washington distracts fellow presidents by sharing a Coke

Nationals Racing Presidents Share a CokeTeddy Roosevelt Hunter PenceNationals racing president George Washington jumped onto the “Share a Coke” bandwagon Friday night at Nationals Park, setting up a table with personalized Coca Cola bottles for each of his fellow racing presidents near the finish line of the fourth inning race.

The shameless plug distracted George’s competitors, who each stopped to get their drinks as the founding father dashed off toward the finish line to take his second straight victory.

The game was the first of a weekend series vs. the San Franciso Giants, prompting one fan to compare the Giant’s Hunter Pence to a certain racing president.

Teddy cheats, loses anyway

The Washington Nationals returns to town last night to kick off a homestand against Tim Lincecum and the San Francisco Giants.

The defense was solid, the bullpen held up, and the Nationals rallied for a much-needed win. Unfortunately, the change in fortune did not extend to Teddy Roosevelt during the 4th-inning presidents race.

Remarkably, despite holding the lead going into the outfield corner, Teddy decided to cut the corner to extend his advantage.

It didn’t help. Thomas Jefferson caught up quickly and took the tape as Teddy faded in the home stretch.
