Teddy the shark attacks George, Tom to kick off Shark Week

Washington Nationals Racing President Teddy Roosevelt dons a Shark mask for Shark WeekWashington Nationals racing president Teddy Roosevelt celebrates Shark Week - Photo by Cheryl NicholsShark Week starts today, and ever the student of popular culture, Teddy Roosevelt got into the act by donning a makeshift shark mask and cardboard dorsal fin for Sunday’s game vs. the New York Mets at Nationals Park.

With Jaws music in the background, Teddy followed the other presidents out of the gate and chased them down, one by one.

Teddy dispatched of both Washington and Jefferson with his razor-sharp cardboard jaws, but he couldn’t catch up to the speedy Abe Lincoln, who crossed the finish line with his limbs intact.

NOTE: After yesterday’s post, the Nationals have updated the standings they show on the scoreboard during the race, properly crediting George with his July 10 victory. We are in sync once again.
