I'm an MBA- a humble one, but an MBA nonetheless- so I feel it appropriate to make my first post a clear statement of the mission of this blog. You see, I'm not in this for the readers, or the joy found in writing. It's actually all very simple: The goal of this blog, in the most simple terms, is to convince Roy Halladay to go to the zoo with me.
How will I do this? It's an uphill battle, I admit. But by demonstrating a clear passion for Phillies baseball, a (non-stalkerish (in my younger days I'd have written that in all capital letters)) appreciation of the awesomeness of Doc, and my fondness for zoo animals- especially penguins- I think I can get our new ace to spend a nice afternoon eating funnel cake and looking at tigers.
"And if this doesn't work out?", you ask. Let's not walk too far down that road. I'll merely leave you with the thoughts of noted philosopher and whackjob, my boy, Nietzsche: "Character is determined more by the lack of certain experiences than by those one has had." Ah! Enough with those thoughts. This will be victory.
