Racing presidents get tackled by Easter Bunny at Nationals Park

Monday April 6th, 2015

Monday is Opening Day, which means the return of all sorts of baseball traditions, including the Washington Nationals' Racing Presidents. 

Things got violent immediately though when the Easter Bunny flew out of the stands and started straight up tackling people.

Poor George Washington and Teddy Roosevelt didn't even see it coming. 

The Easter Bunny was probably in cahoots with William H. Taft, who was able to gleefully cross the finish line first after half the field had been taken out, while the bunny just chilled in the back, admiring his work.

This Racing Presidents stuff is serious business.
