Poor Teddy. As Nationals fans are keenly aware, Teddy Roosevelt has not won a single Presidents Race since the mid-game event event started in 2006. We can all agree that this is a terrible injustice to the legendary Rough Rider… but is it a conspiracy?!
ESPN produced this short documentary about Teddy’s heartbreaking losing streak as part of its E:60 miniseries. They went all out, going as far as interviewing Senator John McCain and featuring the narration of noted baseball fan Ken Burns. The production level that ESPN put into this one-off video is really remarkable.
And who knew there was such a loyal, fervent Teddy following?
