Bullee the Moose takes out our cameraman at the presidents race finish line

After cheating his way into contention entering the final day of the 2013 season, Abraham Lincoln was thwarted by Teddy Roosevelt and an all star cast of interlopers on the final home date of 2013.

Abe needed to sweep the doubleheader to take the title, and The Great Emancipator appeared to be on his way to victory during the afternoon opener; but a rare appearance by Roosevelt conspirator Bullee the Moose ended Abe’s chances. Bullee tackled Abe just short of the finish line, giving the victory to Teddy.

The evening finale was occasion for a relay race featuring a who’s who of presidents race sabateurs.

Martha Washington began the affair by shoving her husband aside and staking the villains to an early lead. The Rally Pigeon held the lead vs. Thomas Jefferson, but in the third leg, Abe Lincoln gained ground vs. the Sharknado, and the Kool Aid Man was unable to gain it back, falling behind to William Howard Taft.

That left Teddy Roosevelt behind in the anchor leg to Bullee the Moose. The Rough Rider and his usual co-conspirator pushed and shoved along the home stretch before the Moose was thrown over the rail into Row A of Section 134.

Bullee plowed into our intrepid cameraman along the presidents race finish line, knocking out what exclusive footage we had hoped to share from the final day of the season.

The prognosis is positive for a full recovery by 2014.

Teddy took the tape to pull even with William Howard Taft for the final season standings.

Abe Lincoln dons Batman costume to take down the Sharknado

The Shark Week absurdities reached new heights Friday night at Nationals Park, as the Sharknado returned to wreak its own brand of havoc on the Washington Nationals presidents race.

Racing presidents batman vs SharknadoSharknado popped out of the home bullpen and took out front-running William Howard Taft, then spun its way along the warning track toward the rest of the oncoming presidents.

But Abe Lincoln raced from behind dressed in a Batman costume, and the Caped Emancipator collided with Sharknado, clearing the way for Thomas Jefferson to take the victory.

Sharknado invades Washington Nationals presidents raceThe Washington Nationals returned home Friday night expecting to face the Los Angeles Dodgers’ newest baseball phenom Yasiel Puig. They didn’t expect Los Angeles to bring along their even newer L.A. phenom, the Sharknado.

In just over a week since premiering on the SyFy Network, the made-for-TV disaster flick about a freak hurricane that hits Los Angeles and floods the city with man-eating sharks, has become a social media sensation.

In the fourth inning of Friday’s game, the Sharknado hit the Washington Nationals presidents race, appearing mid-race from the home bullpen and spinning its way through the field, knocking down everything in its path.

Well, almost everything. Abe Lincoln slipped past the Sharknado’s grasp, but the freak phenom chased after the Great Emancipator, taking him down as he fell over the finish line.
