WATCH: George W. Bush yells at ‘himself’ during Texas Legends dash

As he frequently is, former president, George W. Bush was in Arlington on Wednesday, taking in the Texas Rangers game. He was treated to a rare experience, seeing a caricature of himself in the Texas Legends Dash against Nolan Ryan and Sam Houston. In fact, America’s 43rd president heckled “himself,” which led to victory.

As the racers turned towards the final stretch, Bush was in last place. But as they ran by his seats, the former president and Rangers’ owner implored his guy to “get moving.” That caused Ryan and Houston to freeze, giving Bush the opening he needed.

Effective strategy.

Perhaps Bush should give that message to the Rangers, who sit in last place in the American League West.
