Baseball and politics
But, I enjoyed my second political encounter of the evening. The Nationals mascots are four American Presidents, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Teddy Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln. They even do a race around the stadium during the stretch. I wanted to share some pics below.
Lincoln, Washington, Jefferson and Roosevelt together.
Since I graduated from Thomas Jefferson's University of Virginia, I had to get my picture with Mr. Jefferson.
Lincoln with some kids at the game.
One of my favorite pictures from the evening. Washington was talking to a bunch of kids and this guy came out of nowhere, whispered something to Washington and then led him away. Even the mascots have handlers in Washington.
Notice where Roosevelt likes to hang out--by the beer stand. This picture might explain why Roosevelt has never won the presidential race around the ballpark.
The field. Too bad the Nationals lost 7-5 in extra innings.
