Perhaps Thomas Jefferson is as frustrated with the Washington Nationals bullpen as the rest of us.
On a day when the Nats’ bullpen notched it’s third and fourth blown saves of the 3-game series vs. the Florida Marlins, our nation’s third president took out his frustration on Abraham Lincoln during the 4th-inning presidents race at Nationals Park.
After George Washington took an early lead, Tom and Abe followed behind and began scuffling almost immediately. Tom slammed Abe against the outfield scoreboard wall, with Abe falling as Teddy Roosevelt raced by.
Teddy was unable to catch George, who notched his first presidents race victory of the young season. Alas, Teddy is now in familiar territory as the only racing president who has yet to win this season.

One thought on “Tom levels Abe in the outfield. George notches win #1.”
I was at this game (as a Marlins fan) and I saw the brutality of the Jefferson cross check. Watching the giant head slam into the dirt never gets old and poor, dejected Abe just walked off of the field, not even bothering to cross the line
