See? Even baseball fans are getting football fever. What we have is the Washington Nationals’ presidential mascots and the tradition of racing food item mascots from Pittsburgh. Normally, you’d expect a band of history’s finest would be able to best food from Pennsylvania, but when they are in the form of oversized mascot costumes, all bets are off — especially when larger-than-life pierogies are making flying tackles that knock Teddy Roosevelt on his behind.

That’s a little much for a mascot race, no? The newly-discovered (to me, anyway) Let Teddy Win blog, a site dedicated to the very subject of presidential mascot races and the Washington Nationals, has much, much more.

In other news, has there ever been a more appropriately named blog to cover such a topic? H/t to The700Level for introducing me to Let Teddy Win.
