Michael Jackson died just hours before the Nationals’ last home game on June 25, so Friday night was the racing presidents’ first opportunity to pay tribute to the late King of Pop.
Instead of racing to the usual stable of songs (are we done yet with “I Ran” by A Flock of Seagulls?), the Nationals racing presidents came out of the gate to the sound of “Don’t Stop Till You Get Enough” by Michael Jackson. Each wore black shoes and a white glove.
Unfortunately, Teddy Roosevelt failed to heed Jackson’s advice and stopped — to dance.
Thomas Jefferson waited till he got enough, running away with the contest, and then doing a moonwalk in celebration!
