Flying Teddy

In case there are any questions about the item below, and whether or not Flying Teddy won the Prez Race, as Boz claimed, this video should answer them.

1) Thomas Jefferson did indeed win yesterday's race. You can see his little small-d democratic self scooting across the finish line in the lower left.

2) TR was disqualified. The announcer could not have been more clear on this point.

3) I mentioned this yesterday, but see the way Teddy went prone after he hit the ground? I was really worried something had happened, like maybe decompression sickness from the rapid pressure change or something like that. It was a scary few moments, but he hopped up and seemed to be fine. Hyperextended Giant Head, the team was calling it. Or should have been, anyhow.

OK flying TR's are cool.

They ought to change the race from the Brewers sausage rip off to all four Presidents zip-line in (from each foul pole, and each alley), hit the backstop, and must climb down the backstop.

First President standing upright with two feet firmly planted on the ground wins.

An alternative, WPL cross marketing plan could have four different WP writers dressed as their favorite deodorant/anti-persperant.

Does it even matter if Teddy was DQed? From left field it was pretty obvious that he didn't make it across the finish line before rolling backward anyway.

I agree with JJ. It didn't look like he crossed the line anyways. I couldn't help but laugh at Teddy on the ground helpless after that stunt, but I'm a sick person.

He laid prone because they had to unhook him from the zip line.

I liked the free hats part of the game the best.
