Teddy wins Presidents Race for 4th straight time

Teddy Roosevelt had lost the Nationals Park Presidents Race 526 consecutive times. Politicians endorsed him. John Cena trained with him. Maybe he was just too slow? Maybe the race was below him? Maybe his head was just too big?

Then Teddy won during the Nats final game of the regular season. And he won three more times after that, including Friday night, when the Nationals grounds crew slide-tackled the three other presidents.

So, Teddy ended the year with four straight victories and a good feeling heading into the offseason. Let's just hope he gets on a solid training regiment to balance out some of that weight. You have to admit, he is a little top-heavy.
