Roy Halladay Was Awesome Again


So Roy Halladay pitched again today: 5 IP, 1 R, 3 H, 2 BB, 6 Ks. It's going to be really hard to not get spoiled, quickly, by this guy. I've got an idea: how about a zoo analogy? Okay! It's like having seen a really hip polar bear, except that when you did it was just sort of laying there in the shade, relaxing. And while you're there looking (all full of greed and entitlement with your stupid crew socks), you think to yourself, "It would be really hip if he dove into the water and then swam around some. They do that you know? It's beautiful. Oh well, I think I'll go get some ice cream." Only later, when you get home and are watching Amazing Race or something dumb, it dawns on you that you got to see a polar bear in person. So my message, folks, is this: enjoy the polar bear.

  1. What, no picture of a polar bear? How am I supposed to fully visualize this analogy without a picture of a polar bear chilling out in the shade?

    (side note on the crew socks: were you at the zoo with my uncle? Cause that would be weird.)

    Is Chooch the human character in the analogy?

    Chooch would surely approve of the decision to go get some ice cream though. I don't think he's so concerned with enjoying the polar bear. But then again, he sees the polar bear all the time.

  4. Hey, Steve Smith is on the Amazing Race, so... nope, no follow-up.
