Teddy’s new shoes help him fly like the wind

After Friday night’s game in which they
raced aboard Segways, the Washington Nationals racing presidents put their new bright red running shoes to the test for real on Saturday at Nationals Park.

If anybody seemed to “benefit,” it was clearly Teddy Roosevelt, who put on a burst of speed like we’ve rarely seen from the rough rider.

Unfortunately, it was a velocity our 26th president was not accustomed to, which might explain why he tripped in the outfield, giving up his huge lead.

To Teddy’s credit, he jumped to his feet and still finished the race in 3rd place — a good sign for Teddy fans that the motivation is there. Now all he has to do is stay on his feet.
