The first presidents race of 2009 took place today in the most unlikely of places — New York’s Nassau Coliseum. Billed as “Kids Day” by the host New York Islanders of the National Hockey League, the Coliseum was host to mascots from around the country for today’s game vs. the Pittsburgh Penguins.
NHL.com has the full play-by-play of the race, plus a terrific photo gallery of all the day’s festivities. Of course, with hockey sticks in hand, it should surprise no one that Abe and Teddy scuffled, with Teddy getting knocked to the ice. Ouch.
