Four years ago a Phillies fan started a blog called “I want to go to the zoo with Roy Halladay,” or as everyone else calls it, “Zoo with Roy.” The idea was pretty simple: Roy Halladay is awesome, and it would be awesome to go to the zoo with him. The implied joke was that Roy Halladay was so crazy-intense a player that he’s not exactly the type of guy who would just go off to the zoo with some random blogger.
But things do change. ZWR expanded from that amusing little joke into a cool Phillies blog and Twitter presence. And Roy Halladay, as we noted a while back, has totally mellowed out in his retirement and actually seems like a lot of fun. Which leads to something simultaneously shocking and inevitable:
