On Wednesday afternoon at Nationals Park, the hero of San Juan Hill ran into an ambush he never could have anticipated.
Racing down the home stretch during the 4th-inning presidents race, a large, costumed Luc the Lobster dashed out of the stands and flattened the Teddy Roosevelt before the big Bull Moose knew what hit him.
What the red menace was doing at Nationals Park remains a mystery, but our best guess is that it had something to do with Wednesday being the opening day of the 64th annual Maine Lobster Festival.
After the race, Teddy tweeted “Ok you wana be like that? I see how it is. Luc the Lobster 1 – Me 0.”
