Video: Calvin Coolidge’s pet raccoon disrupts presidents race

Rebecca Raccoon Grace Coolidge Calvin presidentMr Nice Cream Cone Selfie with TeddyCalvin Coolidge’s pet raccoon Rebecca made her first appearance at Nationals Park Thursday by disrupting the fourth inning presidents race and helping Calvin to victory.

The raccoon was adopted as a pet by first lady Grace Coolidge in 1926, after she saved the raccoon from being served for Thanksgiving dinner.

If tweets by Teddy are any indication, this isn’t the last we’ve seen of Rebecca.

The raccoon’s appearance came just one night after another recurring interloper disrupted Wednesday’s presidents race.

That race featured the return of Mr. Nice Cream Cone, who promoted his local ice cream shop by stopping each of the presidents in the middle of the race and snapping selfies to share on social media.

The ice cream man then videotaped the rest of the race.

Videos below include two from Thursday’s race, followed by Mr. Nice Cream Cone’s video and the race as seen on Nats HD.
