So I finally took a video using my digital camera, since this is likely to be a once in a lifetime event ;-)
For those of you who are not familiar with Washington Nationals games, they have a race between one of the innings during each game where mascots of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, and Teddy Roosevelt race down the field to a finish line. It varies on who wins the race, except for Roosevelt. He has never won a race since they started this tradition, so as you can imagine, he's the big time underdog.
Since it's interleague play with many MLB teams, the Baltimore Orioles are facing off against the Washington Nationals in the current series, aka "The Battle of the Beltways." During last night's game when the "Presidential Race" was held, the Orioles mascot tripped Teddy Roosevelt so he lost his lead and the race. So tonight it was decided the race would be Roosevelt vs The Bird to see who was the better racing mascot
I'll let you view the video to see who wins. Apologies for the faraway shot, we were in the upper sections of the stadium :-)
