Getting Acquainted (A ZWR Guide for the Reds Fan)

Hey there the Reds, it's me, Zoo With Roy, associate executive staff editor of I Want to Go to the Zoo with Roy Halladay, the scientific, folk-pop, and technology world's most heralded bolg about wanting to go to the zoo with Roy Halladay. Of late you've probably had fours or possibly sevens of people mention this site to you (likely noting its late Spring appearance in Thrillist), so I thought it only neighborly to introduce myself in terms you could easily relate to (and without cinnamon!).

In short, ZWR is characterized by the dazzling raw talent of Eric Davis before his spleen or whatever it was in there asploded, the ridiculousness of Chris Sabo's face, the smoothness of a Barry Larkin drinking a Coolatta, the white knuckle excitement of a race against the Preps down Devil's Backbone, the professional delivery of a Johnny Bench Krylon commercial, and the open-mindedness to not care that Davey Johnson lived with his fiancee before they were married.

It also has a reputation for dealing heavily with that which breaks faces, and breaking a few of its own... but it's probably best for you all to get used to that whole phenomenon in advance of this series starting.

So, yeah, hope that helps. Enjoy yourselves! And welcome to Doctober.


  1. I felt like there should have been some '70s synthesizing action music going on here. Maybe I'm a little too messed up in the head.

  2. When I woke up this morning I did NOT, at any time in the day, expect to be confronted with an Airborne reference. Good form
