A sold out Nationals Park crowd had much to celebrate Saturday afternoon, from Pups in the Park day, to a post-game concert by Dierks Bentley, to a stellar league-leading 20th victory for pitcher Gio Gonzalez.
Those expecting a Teddy Roosevelt win unfortunately had less to celebrate.
The movement has spread to the canine community, as evidenced by dogs now showing up in Let Teddy Win t-shirts; but despite looking good out of the gate for the second day in a row, Teddy was ambushed in the right field corner by his fellow commanders-in-chief.
The hit by George Washington knocked Teddy out of the lead, and Abraham Lincoln pulled away for the win.
The presidents then yanked off their uniforms to reveal president-sized versions of the Nationals’ official
playoff “Natitude” t-shirts.
