Teddy wears “astronaut helmet” to commemorate moon landing

Nationals presidents race observers have no doubt come to expect our fab four to commemorate notable cultural events during their nightly 4th-inning ritual. All fans of Teddy Roosevelt can do is hope that the burden is shared by Abe, George, and Tom.

Teddy Roosevelt wears space helmet to commemorate moon landing during the Washington Nationals presidents raceNot so Monday night.

To commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Apollo moon landing, Teddy Roosevelt concocted a makeshift astronaut helmet out of aluminum foil. Teddy’s vision impared by the “helmet,” he was no match down the stretch for George Washington, who took the victory to move into a tie for 2nd place with Thomas Jefferson in the season standings.
