I am a Washington Nationals season ticket holder whose son fell in love with the presidents race from that day in July, 2006 when big-headed Teddy Roosevelt first came up short. Our chants of “Let Teddy Win!” during the presidents race were an attempt add fun to game day at RFK and later Nationals Park, and help turn more and more young people into Washington Nationals fans.
Over the years we’ve been featured on ESPN, FOX, ABC News, NPR, MLB Network, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, USA Today, The Washington Post, The Huffington Post, Roll Call, Politico, and countless other print, online, TV and radio outlets. Who could have guessed?
Today my son is an adult, Teddy has won more than a few races, and the Nats sell out Nationals Park regularly — and yet the site keeps going. Why? Because it continues to be a great, fun learning experience, and has introduced me to many wonderful members of the Nats community including employees, bloggers, and fans, especially kids who discover it every season. Yes, I started it, but it quickly became your forum. Thank you for your photos, videos, texts, and tweets which help keep the site updated (If you have a tip or would like to contribute, please let me know). I don’t write about every race like I used to, but as long as people still want to read about the goings-on inside Nationals Park, we’ll keep it going.
