Nationals Give Away Teddy Rossevelt Bobblehead Dolls

It's Starting To Feel Like They're Doing This On Purpose. Seriously, Teddy Rossevelt?

Could this really be just another NatsFAIL? Or is this all just part of an elaborate scheme just to mess with our heads?

I'm starting to think that it might be the latter. It's too good to be true at this point. A Teddy Rossevelt bobblehead?

The bobbleheads apparently appeared on the day of Ross Detwiler's second start. Was this the logic behind the misspelling of Teddy's name? Who knows?

Either way, I believe that the Nationals would be best served to keep up the act. That way, they might be able to convince us all that we were the butts of a huge joke all year long, and their constant failure was actually a great success.

You're not buying it? Yeah, me neither.

The updated list of NatsFAIL:
1) They just can't win games.
2) They can't spell their own team name right.
3) They need help from fans putting the tarp on the field.
4) They can't spell their players' names right.
5) They fail miserably at shooting sausages into the stands.
6) They misspell names on bobbleheads.

The Nationals play in Washington, D.C., and that's were the White House, the home of the Presidents is also located. So the Nationals use the past Presidents in their promotions.
Sorry again  Andrew, about the PQ.

The Nationals have the Racing Presidents (their version of the sausage race in Milwaukee) between the four on Mount Rushmore. The joke is that Teddy never wins. In classic Nats fashion, this makes him probably the most popular member of the organization, and the Nats milk it for all they can.

Perhaps this is their clever way of getting us to pay ANY attention to them whatsoever, LOL.

If that's the case, then it's safe to assume that it's working.  After all, we're talking about them.

The Brewers are having a Doug Melvin (GM of the Brewers) bobblehead day later this year.  I want to know how the heck a 90 win team can't come up with 5 players to make bobbleheads for.

The Nationals play in Washington D.C.

The President lives in the White House in Washington D.C.

Hopefully, they'll be able to spell Washington D.C. correctly.

You don't see the Nationals logo in the top left corner of the box? Or the big writing down the side that says "Stadium Exclusive"?

If they are just "messing with" people, that's hard to do when you're the Nationals.  People don't expect them to be that clever.
