Giant Racing Teddy Parties on 18th Street


All photos courtesy the Washington Nationals.


As I once discovered at a Prince George's County Safeway, virtually no image in the world is more pleasing to the heart than one of a Giant Racing President Mascot in a non-baseball, real-world situation, particularly when that President is earnestly trying to fit in. If there existed a 4,000-shot series of Giant Racing Abe Lincoln preparing his taxes, watching Dora the Explorer, brushing his teeth and reading The Washington Times, I would carefully examine each photo and then offer a belly laugh and a "well how do you like that!" at each.

So yeah, I'm definitely going to include five shots of Giant Racing Teddy's big night on the town last Friday, when he started in Georgetown, made his way to Adams Morgan, and presumably ended the night by scarfing down falafel and a giant slice of pizza, standing in the middle of 18th Street while directing oncoming traffic, getting into a shoving match with several beefy guys from Montgomery County while his girlfriend yelled "Theodore c'mon just LET IT GO!" and passing out in the back of a cab.

(Note: He actually did none of those things. Instead, he just posed for funny pictures and promoted the Washington Nationals. But trust me, if there were a photo of Giant Racing Teddy passed out in the back of a cab, it would make me smile.)

During the Olympics Crowd Noise guru Bonita Appleblog will be updating the Top 5 daily, or mostly daily, or semi-daily, or something. So thank her.

Which means, after August 26, the Top 5 will next be updated during the Opening Ceremonies from Vancouver. Unless I get permission to hire my unpaid intern one of these days.

Just remember, Teddy talks softly but carries a big stick. Would that the Nationals would follow his lead.

This is the only good thing that's happened with the Nationals all month.

The top 5 update was the surprise of the summer. You should have a SportsBog hall of fame though which obviously should include the Yoder pus video.

Your man crush interview of Mike Wise during the pre-NCAA tournament week should also make it.

While in Georgetown he tried to go to Smith Point but was denied for not wearing proper boat shoes.

Looks like Teddy got closer to scoring last night than the Nats have in weeks. Girl in the green shirt, I'm talking to you...

Teddy was in fact denied entrance to Smith Point but welcomed in Dupont Circle. Those crazies there welcomed another into their midst.

Alright, that right there might be the funniest thing you've ever written, Dan.

Agreed - perfectly stated

I'm not a fan of her "blog," but it hardly seems the appropriate time for me to blast her...

Pile on: You knocked Adams Morgan out of the park. That is, as long as he got his jumbo slice from that place with the strobe light inside.
