Abe abandons lead, jumps into the stands

On a beautiful 4th of July afternoon at Nationals Park, the Washington Nationals enjoyed their third consecutive Independence Day victory behind a solid outing from pitcher John Lannan and a booming 300th career homer by Adam Dunn.

Abe Lincoln jumps into standsThe come-from-behind victory gave Nationals fans plenty to cheer about, and they did, easily drowning out the usual contingent of Atlanta Braves fans who show up in DC; but Abe Lincoln’s antics during the 4th inning presidents race drove more than a few spectators to stunned silence.

After coming from behind to take the lead from Thomas Jefferson heading into the home stretch, Abe inexplicably turned and headed straight for the stands in section 134, where he climbed over the rail and waited for the presidents race to end.

It was positively Teddy-esque.
