A while ago we wrote a post regarding rumors about a new president to be added to the Presidents Race. Well, we never followed up on it, but the Washington Nationals did. Earlier in the week, the Nationals twitter confirmed that a new president would be announced at Nats Fest. Well tonight, as Dan Steinberg first reported, that new president is William Howard Taft.
What does this mean for the Presidents Race, aside for completely restructuring the warning track with support beams to counteract the tremendous downward force of Taft’s extra weight? Well frankly, I don’t know. I don’t know what to expect out of Taft, aside from frequent clogging of the toilet in the presidents’ break room.
One new thing to expect is perhaps the inclusion of a vehicle, not to give Taft an advantage but rather a fighting chance. Perhaps a motorized custom-made bathtub to help him down the track? Honestly if he doesn’t get some form of transport to assist him we’ll need extra paramedics on the sidelines.
I wonder how Teddy feels about this. He was beaten by Taft once, and if it happens again it’ll be pretty soul crushing for Roosevelt. Also Taft historically busted more trusts than Teddy, despite Teddy’s more famous nickname of the “Trust-Buster.” What does this say about the Nationals confidence in Teddy to bust any trusts that get in his way? Certainly nothing supportive. Poor Teddy. Just when he started winning, he loses again.
