Of all the many reactions to Teddy Roosevelt’s first-ever win — disinterest, joy, frustration, uneasiness, laughter, tears — my favorite sort came late on Wednesday night.
See, at least one edition of SportsCenter chose Teddy as the No. 1 highlight on the daily Top 10 list, ahead of Miguel Cabrera winning the Triple Crown. And in the course of arguing against this decision, at least a few ESPN viewers confused our 26th President with a sausage.
Lost all respect for SC top ten, sausage heads racing beat out miggy winning the triple crown for number 1!!! #figureitout

The fact that the racing sausages are #1 on sc top 10 is mad disrespectful to @miguelcabrera

.@espn Where sausage racing is more important than the first triple crown in 45 years.
