Bob Costas breaks down Teddy Roosevelt's winning race

Bob Costas was a little perplexed Wednesday afternoon as to why it took Teddy over 500 races to finally beat his -presidential "running" mates.

While Costas understands Lincoln has a clear advantage with his 6'5" frame, he can't see why Teddy hasn't performed better. Because according to Bob, Teddy was one of the most athletic presidents in the history of the United States He's not wrong either. In his quite accomplished career (to say the least), Roosevelt spent years as a cowboy in North Dakota.

That doesn't help him with this sprinting though.
