As usual, the hero of San Juan Hill gets little respect, being featured in just a cameo role.

But Teddy sure loves free candy:

Nats racing president Teddy Roosevelt to appear in ESPN Sportscenter ad

Nationals racing president Teddy Roosevelt ESPN adNationals racing president Teddy Roosevelt ESPN adThe Nationals racing presidents made an appearance at the ESPN “up fronts” on Tuesday in New York City, joining executives on Broadway’s Minskoff Theater stage for the network’s annual gathering of media buyers.

The annual presentation has evolved over the years into a multimedia show filled with network personalities.

The Disney-owned network unveiled a redesigned set for its flagship SportsCenter show, and revealed that racing president Teddy Roosevelt would soon appear in the show’s iconic TV commercials.

The Nats’ famous mascots then scampered on stage as part of a scripted gag, and posed for photos with attendees.

Teddy’s Sportcenter ad was shot last week at ESPN headquarters, and should appear on the air this summer.
