Greetings From the Retreat


I told y'all I'd try to get a bobbleroy/donkey in a ZWR shirt/MS Paint-ish picture up on the old bolg, and that's exactly what I have for you this morning. You're so excited, right? I can't blame you. I mean, for real, look at RJ, all pointing and standing and having his hat on backwards and whatnot.


Oh, and did you see that the bobbleroys are going for like $30 to $50 on eBay? It's a goofy thought I only really half-care about the answer to, but who is it selling these? Folks who happened upon the game but don't like Roy Halladay? Hard to think there's a ton of them heading out on a crummy Tuesday night against the Pirates, and I refuse to acknowledge the possibility of anyone that doesn't dig Roy Halladay. Donkeys that buy tickets just to sell the doll? Seems like too much effort to make relatively little money. Oh, well. I'm intrigued. And for all of you who went because you love the Phils, and appreciate HLHIII, enjoying the fun little fellow in mid-cutter delivery right there on your desk while you check out zoowithroy.com or someone much more worthwhile: good for you.

    ushers at the gates would only give out 1 bobbleroy per fan in attendance, not per ticket. people were pissed. phillies staff was hauling crates of bobbleroys away from the gates. of course the scalpers outside had like 20

    theory - phils front office is selling them on ebay for the bearded piggy bank.....

  3. ZWR, I'm expecting a big birthday bash for the bearded one today.
    I assume the reason we haven't heard yet is because its a surprise party....

  4. spidermoneyluver: If you had multiple Tickets you had to walk in -> get your Roybblehead -> walk back out via mcfaddens -> go back in with next ticket --- repeat until all tickets scanned & Roybbleheads are acquired.

    RJ: We think alike...thats exactly what I did.

    Did you see the commotion by the gates? Those Roybbleheads needed police escorts

  7. That idea actually came from @phillykelly who got herself a record 8 roybbleheads, I can't take credit for it. I think I missed the commotion, I went into the game an hour early... standing around in the rain and wind in a parking lot got old pretty fast....

  8. i had 4 tickets and my brother had 4 but was otherwise (flyers) occupied. so i did get 8 bobbleroys, but only got to keep 4. i positioned them in most rooms in my home, so i am never more than a few feet away from one. this could seem weird to most people, but i feel like whoever reads this blogs definitely understands.
