Racing presidents ride in DC St. Patricks Day Parade

With Steven Strasburg making his second spring training start in sunny Florida, the local Nats fans facing another weekend of lousy DC weather were greeted to their own surprise treat today.

Nationals racing presidents at DC St Patricks Day ParadeYes, the crowd that braved the rain this afternoon to line Constitution Avenue for the 2010 Nation’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade was treated to an appearance by some very special dignitaries.

Emerging from between the floats, marching bands, and pipe bands were the Nationals’ very own racing presidents George Washington, Abe Lincoln, and Teddy Roosevelt, who accompanied the DC Fire Department through the parade, riding atop a hook & ladder truck and walking along Constitution Avenue to greet and shake hands with the fans who lined the parade route.
