For the second straight day, Teddy Roosevelt took a big lead in the presidents race at Nationals Park, only to be tripped up by fan interference.
In the 4th inning of today’s exciting 2-0 victory over the Chicago Cubs, Teddy dashed out once again in front of George, Tom, and Abe; but as he made the turn around the warning track by the foul pole, a banana in pajamas ran out onto the field and laid right in Teddy’s path. “Look out, Teddy!” the announcer yelled, but it was too late. Teddy slipped on the banana, turning a
sure-thing victory into a quite unappealing defeat.
Yesterday’s panther attack was humiliation enough. Now one of the greatest presidents in U.S. history is being made the butt of a giant banana peel joke. Is this a sign of things to come for the rest of the homestand? For the 2nd straight day, our 26th president didn’t cheat and still had the lead. The homestand’s not over. It’s time to Let Teddy Win!
