Will somebody please hold Screech accountable?
In one of the most blatant examples ever of the anti-Teddy conspiracy, the Nationals’ feathered mascot and presidents race judge handed the victory to Thomas Jefferson Tuesday night, despite an overwhelming case for Tom’s disqualification.
When the race began, Abe Lincoln jumped out to a big lead, and despite running into the outfield wall, still held a big advantage over George Washington and Teddy Roosevelt entering the home stretch.
Jefferson, meanwhile, failed to participate, instead appearing for the duration of the race just in front of the finish line in first base foul territory.
As Lincoln approached the tape, Tom jumped out and slammed him to the ground. The Sage of Monticello then waltzed across the finish line, and to the dismay of 26,759 in the stands, was declared the victor.
Is there any doubt that Teddy Roosevelt would have faced instant disqualification?
After being declared the winner, Jefferson faced the in-stadium cameras and waved his hand in front of his face. Apparently Tom’s ambush and the “You Can’t See Me!” reference were a tribute to WWE wrestler John Cena, who was in the house. [Thanks Tom]
