Take me out to the ball game

Spring has sprung and baseball season is in full force. I did a little checking on the subject, and baseball has been around for quite some time, with the

first recorded games in the U.S. coming about in the mid-19th century. The tried-and-true all-American sport is thriving with more than 75 million fans attending Major League Baseball games each year. It’s expected that roughly 30 million hot dogs will be consumed during the 2010 baseball season, and if you happen to be at a ball game on July 5, make sure you get a box of Cracker Jacks to celebrate Cracker Jack Day

Recently, the Caveman teamed up with Ryan Zimmerman, the Washington Nationals’ All-Star 3rd Baseman and Gold Glove winner for the 2009 season. They can be seen together on the field and in the gym

The Gecko loves baseball, too! GEICO sponsors the President’s Race at all home games in Washington, D.C. The race features larger-than-life caricatures of George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson and Teddy Roosevelt vying for the finish line, marked by the Gecko waving a flag. The President’s Race has become a fixture at the Nationals home games. Try as he might, Teddy has yet to win, and a blog has launched to support him. I’m typically a Lincoln fan, but I’m really rooting for Teddy this season. We’d love to hear about your favorite teams and team mascots.

    Hahaha, nice link to the Let Teddy Win blog :)

    Teddy Roosevelt was actually a very good athlete.  I’m not sure about the others (rather doubt it in Lincoln’s case). 

  3. Presidents Race Fan says:

    The conspiracy that is the Washington Nationals presidents race is a crime.  Teddy Roosevelt would absolutely whoop George, Tom, or Abe in an actual race.  Let Teddy Win!

    I have a sneaking suspicion that Teddy will win his first race on the day Strasburg makes his major league debut.
