Nats introduce JFK racing president

The hell? Stan Kasten takes off, and suddenly we have a racing Kennedy? Or, not racing, per se. From Let Teddy Win:

As the presidents entered the field, PA announcer Jerome Hruska introduced the “American presidential gladitorial race.” After navigating around a circus clown positioned in the outfield, the presidents ran into a super-sized John F. Kennedy, who knocked George Washington to the ground.

Well, that’s sort of a clinical description, isn’t it? Here’s another way of putting it:

JFK appeared during Racing Presidents in tonite’s Nats game and kneecapped Washington with a bat.

Welcome to the party, 35. You should fit right in.

I mean, I’ve long said there should be at least 41 or 42 racing presidents, breathing new life into a somewhat musty tradition. Everyone would love seeing Taft racing Tyler and Taylor, right? This bat-bopping Kennedy is certainly a step in the right direction. Video below.
