If you haven’t been following the Washington Nationals racing presidents on social media, this week wouldn’t be a bad time to start. Teddy Roosevelt and his big-headed compatriots are making daily appearances around the DC area as part of a countdown to opening day campaign, and giving prizes to folks who show up and share on social media. More importantly, following their “workouts” has been pretty entertaining (in between they’ve even been sharing some classic GIFs from this website).
The presidents have conducted workouts at the Lincoln Memorial, National Harbor, and Farragut Square, and made appearances at a DC United match, a Navy baseball game (where Abe picked up an endorsement from NJ governor Chris Christie), the White House Easter Egg Roll, and the Maryland Police Academy. On Thursday, they’ll be at TC Williams High School, and Sunday at a University of Maryland baseball game. In between, they’ll be holding exhibition races at Nationals Park on Friday and Saturday.
