The racing presidents accompanied the Washington Nationals to Pittsburgh’s PNC Park this week, marking the fifth straight year the presidents have faced off with Pittsburgh’s racing pierogies.
PNC Park has never been kind to the presidents — particularly Teddy Roosevelt, who famously got leveled there by Potato Pete in 2009.
Perhaps that’s why he and sat out the first race of the series Tuesday night. As George Washington and Abe Lincoln squared off against Jalapeño Hannah and Sauerkraut Sal, Teddy and Thomas Jefferson manned the finish line.
As they always seem to do at home, the pierogies trounced the presidents.
