The Washington Nationals racing presidents were not all on their game Wednesday night at Nationals Park.
As the presidents were announced, George Washington banged his head into the centerfield gate, subsequently hitting Thomas Jefferson with a backwards head butt before the race even started.
The impact apparently knocked open Jefferson’s uniform, because the Sage of Monticello completed the race with his uniform open — a no-no in the usually Rated-G NatsTown. One of the mascot handlers raced to the finish line to cover him up and preserve his modesty.
Abe took the win.
