Roy Halladay Is Likely Going To Break Faces In His Next Start


"Man, unlike any other thing organic or inorganic in the universe, grows beyond his work, walks up the stairs of his concepts, emerges ahead of his accomplishments."

In the midst of an afternoon partly spent floating and then otherwise aimless it was nice to see the following Twitter note from the only alumnus of a top-five graduate journalism program to beg me for free t-shirts:




Everything about that is affirming (not to mention charming due to the humor in the "athlete v. non-athlete" visual of the schlubby (sorry Ryan) reporters being forced to shrug themselves out of the way- as they get off of an elevator no less- while Halladay, without distraction, ever-intent, dashes past): it's the middle of the day, he's already worked himself hard yet still sprints, it's all happening in an empty ballpark... just the perfect image to speak to what makes Roy Halladay special. Most would find it difficult to anticipate his not bouncing back from the Boston start when you merely take into account the track record of the pitcher; it is even harder to do so when you know the ethic behind the talent.
