When the Nationals won their first division championship in 2012, Teddy Roosevelt snapped a six-year losing streak and dominated his opponents in the playoffs. Two years later, it happened again, and this year, with the Nationals winning their third division title, it appears Teddy can’t be stopped in the postseason.
Of course, Teddy’s had some help in the past, and Friday’s National League Division Series Game 1 was no exception.
An overly-elaborate narrative for the fourth inning race began when the presidents found two large eggs blocking their path on the warning track. Roosevelt stopped, turned around, and carried the eggs beyond the center field fence.
After some crunching sounds were heard, Teddy reappeared being chased by two people in T-Rex costumes. The dinosaurs pursued the presidents toward the finish line, tackling Hoover, Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, and Taft in succession.
But they couldn’t catch up to the hero of San Juan Hill.
Meanwhile, the team lost a squeaker to the dreaded Dodgers, stranding nine runners along the way.
Let the curse talk begin anew.
