So Roy Halladay Pitched Yesterday (4.11.10 vs. Astros)


Ho-hum everyday things that happened yesterday:
  1. I ate CrunchBerries.
  2. NAG NAG NAG bought a new sectional.
  3. * Roy Halladay pitched a complete game, giving up no earned runs, throwing only 111 pitches (Roy Oswalt threw 114 in six innings), and walking nobody. All that, and he only gave up five fly balls- after allowing three against Washington. It was dominating with a subtext of relatively easy, Astros skill level of "butt" notwithstanding.
The whole notion of wanting to go to the zoo with him aside, Roy is already believably unbelievable. I find it interesting that yesterday's performance, while drawing the accolades it rightly deserved, didn't elicit the ZOINKS, zOMG, or WOOOT!!! buzz a pitching performance like that generally would. Is it possible that by only the second game of the regular season we've become spoiled? Probably.

See, that doesn't even resonate with a thump. He's that good. So there you go. Roy Halladay pitched one of the best baseball games you'll see yesterday.

I want you all to read this, because it's incredibly intelligent and beautifully written. AND she managed to end with a "cuttered", kind of like Joyce making sure the last word in Ulysses is "Yes": http://mabel.mlblogs.com/archives/2010/04/plus-hes-just-so-handsome.html

ZWR HAPPENINGS
Kudos to our favorite potentially unstable poster, Heathcliff Slocumb (see the post this past weekend with the pictures from opening day. What? Oh, right, here's the link), on basically nailing yesterday's prediction contest. As the winner, he gets to pick which animal gets MS Painted next. (Note to HS: dude I can't draw rhinos!)

    There are many aminals I would like to see MS Painted (rhinos included). However, I would be doing a great disservice to my main man, Mr. Python - my pick for the Harry Leroy Halladay III Trophy - were I not to pick him as the centerpiece of the next MS Paint masterpiece.

    ZWR - show some love to my man the Python, puh-leez


    P.S. - Unstable, no doubt (potentially can be removed). however, there's no way I'm less stable than the guy who made this. No way in hellz bellz.
