Hope for Teddy

nationals teddy roosevelt.jpgDear readers, there is no denying it.  The 2009 Washington Nationals are a complete embodiment of the new, hip and devastatingly adroit four-letter word dominating the interwebs.  And that word is FAIL.

The Natinals‘ pitching is atrocious.  Their defense is vomit inducing.  Their front office is turbulent.

And, worst of all, Teddy Roosevelt still can’t win a race.

But this is U.S. America, my friends.  And in U.S. America, we U.S. Americans can do anything we put our minds to… well, anything except provide universal health care, halt military action in Iraq and establish a sound domestic economy, of course.

Yet I have faith in the future of this franchise.  They can hit.  The Zimmerman/Dunn centerpiece in D.C. provides a solid foundation.  Indeed, there is hope. 

Because if someone can take this:

And make this:

…then miracles are possible!

Don’t hate me ‘cuz I’m right.

Peace,

Jeff

    Yes, the comments were hysterical – “…keep ballin”
    Now if the poor fella does have a stuttering problem, then I feel kind of bad laughing at him.

    So Teddy is a runner?

    Never thought Mr. Roosevelt would amount to much success other than the office,

    but I guess he amounted to his life long dream? =)

    I hope he ends up winning a few races,

    just like the elections.

    He should be the front runner,

    so place your bets!!

    At least something is fun about going to Nats games huh?

    Now Ted’s Take:

    Erin — No kiddin. I think it’s funny how the kiddos automatically think he’s “trippin”.
    Jonestein — I’d feel bad if he does have a speech impediment… for like five seconds… then I’d go back to laughing. I’m a sorry SOB.
    Ted — He’s never won. He never will. LOL. Do you even read these posts are do you just comment? Doesn’t matter to me, but I was just curious.
    Peter — LOL! Don’t worry… no Brad Lidge-like implosions in St. Louis… just some tired bodies. They’ll get it together again, starting tonight! I waz juzz readin’ right…

    IBDB — I don’t think that’s the case. He’s played both left and 1st and he’s been hittin’ dingers all year. He is lousy defensively no matter where ya put him.
    Julia — Um…like um… I was just readin’ right… and I was like um…YES!
