With George, Tom, and Abe having each won one of the first three presidents races at Nationals Park, and the snakebitten Washington Nationals coming into the evening on a 6-game skid, the question on the mind of Nats fans was whether they would see the end of somebody’s losing streak tonight against the Florida Marlins.
Unfortunately, the luck of neither Teddy nor the team changed tonight, as Thomas Jefferson took the 4th inning contest to take the season lead, and our Nats suffered their fourth heartbreaking one-run loss just ten games into the season. After consecutive sweeps by the Cardinals and Marlins, the Nationals 3-game winning streak to start the season is a distance memory.
Friday night the Atlanta Braves come to Nationals Park for the final series of this homestand. Let’s hope for a big turnout and an end to some losing streaks this weekend!

It is too early in the season for them to be hurting my heart this much! 🙂
Was thinking of you and this fabulous blog today. I took my four-and-a-half year old daughter to the new ballpark today for our first visit. Had an absolutely wonderful time — despite another horrendous performance on the field. The best time was visiting the playground in the outfield. After the presidents made their visit to the crowd for photos, they went off down the ramp to the downstairs service entry garage. And who was the last one to get there to start packing up for the day? You guessed it — Teddy! Poor guy. Just can’t catch a break.
