Now Would Be a Good Time To Sell Your Disney Stock (or, "Holy Butt, squared")



So I don't really know how to say, or begin to explain, this (and let me apologize in advance if you're a Disney shareholder), but I'm kind of going to be on ESPN's First Take this Friday morning to discuss the bolg. You'd better read that again: I'm kind of going to be on ESPN's First Take this Friday morning to discuss the bolg.

AINOES, RITE?! When they sent the e-mail I was all, "Wait what?" and they were all, "No, really, donkey." And then I was all, well, I don't remember much that happened after that.

Anyway, stuff (including perhaps the most absurd idea ever by an ESPN producer, which I loved) is still being worked out and what not, but, yeah, it's so on: national television... a bolg about going to the zoo with Roy Halladay... MS Paint drawings on display... Skip Bayless... Oh good lord. So if you're a stay-at-home mom, tune in. Everyone else, synchronize your Tivos or whatever.

We've made it, donkey nation!


POSTSCRIPT
I fully expect things to blow up from here--free hammocks, movie cameos, red carpet appearances, Ryan Lawrence's mooching, you name it. But you donkeys make a great bit of this whole bolg experience, and I really can't thank you all enough.

  4. Do we finally get to find out who is the master mind behind the creating of ZWR?

  5. Sweet! Now the whole world will know about your quest, which we all support.

  6. I'm just surprised it took this long.

  7. Somebody send the footage to Roy Halladay himself, but wait until Saturday. Friday is game day for Roy and nobody should mess with him Friday.

  8. That picture with Skip Bayless, or whatever his name is, is amazing. Priceless.

  9. This is the most amazing thing ever. HAHA I cant wait to see this

  10. If you don't subtly mock Skip Bayless in some way, you're letting down all the children.

  11. I've been kind of picturing you as Roy Halladay's face on a Red Panda's body, so I'm expecting to be let down.

  12. are you still going to be friends with us or are you going to be all like screw the little people now

  13. Please be rocking one of the awesome ZWR wears.

  14. if this will be an interview by phone, can you choose your picture as it appears on tv? if so, you absolutely have to MSpaint a self-portrait and submit that to the network.

  15. This could be it. This could be the pivotal moment that actually gets you to the zoo with Roy (or at least Kyle Kendrick).

  16. speechless. this is the most important event in modern television history.

    Everyone on that show has a huge chin.

    I'll definitely be programming the old VCR for this one.

  18. Agree with Edward. Recommend Jacki completes the MS Paint portrait for use tomorrow rather than your mug. Keep the mystery alive so you don't get mobbed on the street by donkeys.

  19. Heathcliff Slocumb, that would be such a letdown. Imagine expecting to meet Roy at the zoo and KK shows up.

    I agree with whoever said to wear the "Eat Shift" shirt. It seems appropriate to wear when appearing on ESPN.

  20. OMG. just. i think i shed a tear of joy. everything in my life has been leading up to this moment.

    this will be on at 10am, i guess? screw work tomorrow!

    also @ above anon - i'd be honored.

  21. I'm trying to order a Giroux shirt but the size drop-down isn't working. When I hit "add to cart" I get an error msg. telling me to select a size. But I can't, help I'm stuck in a loop.

    ReplyDelete
  22. actually i already don't have work tomorrow. zomg i am just so excited

    i hope somehow this all gets back to roy. kinda like how the 'stinks to be you' shirt made its way through the circuit.

    ReplyDelete
  23. This news almost makes up for today's loss of Rue McClanahan. Hope you wow them with you MS Paint prowess!

    ReplyDelete
  24. SO EXCIIIITEEDDDD. ICECEECECE CREAMIES FOR YOUUUUU.

    ReplyDelete
  25. T-MINUS, LIKE, LESS THAN 12 HOURS TIL ZWR TAKES OVER THE WORLD. (and makes skip bayless his donkey). wahhhhhhhhhhhh

    ReplyDelete
  26. 27 comments on a post. zomg. That's gotta be some kinnda record. Wooohooo!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Please please please post video of The Appearance on the bolg. Some of us donkeys (read: me, maybe others) live overseas, and thus can't see it.

    Also, fun fact: ZWR is blocked in China. Perhaps this is Panda related.

  28. Don't know about other areas, but on my cable First Take is on ESPN News today. FYI...

    ReplyDelete
  29. so, i didn't get to see ZWR on first take today because espn had to be a donkey and switch it to espnews which i don't get. Plz pretty plz, is anyone going to put the segment up on youtube or a bolg or something?! i will be heartbroken if i completely miss out on ZWR breaking faces and MSpaint on the tv.

    ReplyDelete
  30. ZOMG! Just saw the bears, tigers, and pandas on first take! HERE WE GOOOOOOOO... only a few minutes out.

    ReplyDelete
  31. OH YOU TRICKY BASTARD! You darkened your face! You filmed that at ESPN Zone this morning in D.C. I work a few buildings down. I wish I would have known!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Maria - that would be a total letdown.

    That was also me that suggested the Eat Shift shirt (post over on da Fightins)

    P.S. - 34th, donkeys! What what!

    ReplyDelete
  33. adam- that was espn's call... wanted to play along with bolg jokes and whatnot.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Is there anyone who can post a video of this? If anyone can, it would be a public service to accomplish such selfless act
