They need a new gimmick next year now.  maybe adding a new president?  Taft would look funny.  Seeing his fat ass run around the field would be hilarious.

Only thing I didn't like - why did he need the help of the philies mascot to win?

If they were going to go that route - they should have used either the Pirates mascot (since they helped us into the NL east division title) or Screech.  Would have also been funny if Werth and the bullpen did a reprise from last year and held up the other presidents....

Someone on Twitter pointed out now they'll probably go back and disqualify him for having help

They'll do it at the beginning of next season so they can recycle the "main event" for another year :roll:

the stadium looks pretty packed from the video i just posted.

It was packed. And they made it pretty obvious they were going to do it today.
 
Now those let teddy win losers can get a new hobby.

Pretty anti-climatic win with that dumb Philly tie-in, the RFK finale is still the most memorable race, nothing nearly that cool this afternoon.

I did like the Teddy pin (I got 3), it would be nice to add pins into the promotional schedule rotation for next season.

Asked whether he'd been inspired by the outcome of the mascot race, Zimmerman rolled his eyes.

"I am so glad Teddy won, so we can stop talking about Teddy. People get more excited for a mascot race than a game," Zimmerman said, before adding in a voice drenched with sarcasm: "Yes, I'm excited Teddy won. I'm ecstatic."

So the two biggest national stories about the Nats during this BREAKOUT year have been shutting down Stephen, closely followed by Teddy and his miraculous ability to finally win a faux race....really??? I mean REALLY those are the two biggest stories about this club???? What about Gio and 21 wins?!?, what about Z'mann and his comeback from TJ Surgery, I mean who remembers that Wilson Ramos was kidnapped last year and then blew out a knee, to be replaced by 4 different catchers....Teddy, I love you, but quit stealing the spotlight from the people who really deserve it.

Yeah, really. I was wondering what the hell happens. Ignore the playoffs, but what happens there? He wins every game? But next year... We go back to Teddy losing every game, except come playoff time? Nonsense.

I say you let Teddy win every home playoff, then retire him. Do a JFK, FDR wheelchair race, some other president. Come next April, the Teddy factor will be pointless, stupid, contrived and a growing point of contention for a small subset of the crowd.
