Video: On National Lucky Penny Day, Teddy finds a penny , Abe steals it

Nationals racing presidents Lucky Penny DayNational Lucky Penny Day Nationals Racing PresidentsThe Nationals returned to DC to kick off a homestand on a rainy Tuesday night, and in keeping with tradition, the team’s racing presidents used the occasion to celebrate another obscure holiday.

So fans who happened to know that it was National Lucky Penny Day would not have been surprised in the fourth inning, when Teddy Roosevelt, who a quarter into the season is 0-for-20 in the presidents race, took a big lead out of the gate only to be distracted when he found a giant penny lying in foul territory.

Unfortunately the penny was anything but lucky, as being distracted was only the beginning of Teddy’s problems.

“Honest” Abe Lincoln, who’d been trailing behind, stole the penny from the Bull Moose and raced ahead for the victory.

Lincoln is once again alone atop the presidents race standings.
