Racing President Falls, Tragically

As previously mentioned, yesterday was Nats Racing President Head Tryout Day, and I didn't go. Lots of other people did, though, and you can read lots about it in the Washington Times or a little about it at WTOP. NBC4 also has a video.

But the clear highlight is provided below by the fine folks from Comcast SportsNet. Please keep your eye on Tom Davis, who organizes the races for the Nats and is in the far left of the screen. His reaction to this tragedy is fairly priceless.

Also, look at Jefferson's nose at the end. Man, I love this video.

How has no one mentioned that the guy who fell in the Jefferson suit went into the locker room after and had a bloodied head, but soon covered it up with his hat?

Man, Thomas Jefferson does a great impression of the Wizards without Butler and Arenas.

Am I the only one who noticed TR wasn't among the racers?

Is this post a subliminal shot at political lobbyists?

Don't they have their own place to do that?
