Video: Teddy Roosevelt rides a tricycle but can’t catch Thomas Jefferson

Nationals presidents race Teddy Roosevelt Tricycle by Cheryl NicholsAfter wowing the crowd Saturday with his Gangnam Style dance, Teddy Roosevelt reached back into his bag of tricks Sunday at Nationals Park, entering the race aboard an oversized tricycle.

The trick might have worked, but a wet warning track and a big early lead by Thomas Jefferson proved insurmountable, as the presidents raced to the 3B side in their traditional Sunday finest.

Jefferson took the tape to keep the heat on Abraham Lincoln in the season standings.

Teddy comes up short in first California presidents race

Presidents race in Anaheim - Teddy on TricyclePresidents race in Anaheim - George WinsThe Nationals’ racing presidents joined the team in Anaheim, California Monday night as the Nats kicked off the Davey Johnson era vs. the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

Fans at Angel Stadium cheered as the presidents took the field in the middle of the 5th inning wearing oversized versions of the Nationals new road uniforms; but those looking for Teddy’s luck to change on the road were extremely disappointed.

Teddy entered the field riding an oversized tricycle, and fell behind the other presidents before they reached the right field corner.

As they hit the home stretch, George Washington shoved Abe Lincoln into the stands, preserving the first victory in Anaheim for the father of our country.
