For the sixth straight year, The Nationals racing presidents accompanied the team to Pittsburgh’s PNC Park to participate in the host team’s Great Pierogie Race. For the sixth straight year, the presidents came up short.
The weekend’s antics included relay races and promising starts for the Nationals’ fab five. However, the presidents were once again undone by overconfidence, distractions, and plain old Pierogie aggression.
On Friday, William Howard Taft held a sizeable lead, but stopped cold when the Pittsburgh Parrot appeared dangling a large pizza over the field. On Saturday, it was Teddy Roosevelt’s turn to run anchor. The Bull Moose dashed ahead on the anchor leg, but tripped after turning to taunt Cheese Chester. Chester leapt over the fallen Teddy to keep the presidents winless in Pittsburgh.
