Nationals racing president Abraham Lincoln has been on a tear recently, riding a four game winning streak into Friday night’s presidents race at Nationals Park. But Teddy Roosevelt brought a new character onto the field to disrupt Abe’s rhythm.
As the fourth inning race began, Roosevelt was in front of the bullpen with a new character, “his pet moose, ‘Bullee,'” playing catching with a small stuffed Mr. Met mascot. As the field approached, Bullee turned and attacked the oncoming racers, leaving only Thomas Jefferson standing.
“I guess Lewis and Clark showed him how to avoid moose,” said P.A. announcer Jerome Hruska. Teddy only finished second, taking his frustrations out on Mr. Met.
