The Washington Nationals have had a banner season, clinching the NL East. The years of solid drafting have paid off and they’ve broken through. Also finally breaking through is mascot Teddy Roosevelt in the racing presidents competition. Roosevelt was never allowed to win. George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Abraham Lincoln have been allowed to win.
Finally in his 535th race, Teddy gets it done.
From the blog “Let Teddy Win!”
