After watching Abe Lincoln take 8 of the last 10 presidents races, the Great Emancipator got a little cocky, but Teddy Roosevelt decide to take things into his own hands on Sunday at Nationals Park.
After jumping out to a quick start, Lincoln turned around to taunt the other presidents, but Teddy caught up and slammed the Great Emancipator into the outfield scoreboard. Abe came up limp and failed to finish, as Thomas Jefferson pulled away for the victory.
In a post-race tweet, Teddy declared “How you like me now Abe? You won’t get in my way anymore!”
The Nats are mum regarding the extent, if any, of Honest Abe’s injuries.
