In all seriousness, thanks to everyone for a really great 2012 here on the bolg. Thanks for reading, and look for lots more cool stuff planned in the new year. See you in MMXIII.
12. Awesome Emma Live on the Red Carpet
Check it out for the awkward Vance (you'll be missed) Worley interaction and Awesome E's overall facebreaking adorableness. Stay for the J-Roll high five.

11. Super Pumped Marlins Fan Guy
Honestly this photo still makes me laugh every time I think about it. But what was cool about this post was that we actually got to know the real Super Pumped Marlins Fan Guy, @anostro, and he had a really good sense of humor about the whole thing. Special thanks to @cranekicker for all his help. I think we made a billion of these over the course of the season.
10. The 2012 Phillies as your Company's Softball Team
I remade a 2012 version of the original post with an entirely new cast of donkeys and bench scrubs.
9. Some Phillies E-Card
Everyone loves Some E-Cards, so this summer I was bored one day and made a whole bunch of them. So yeah.
8. Phillies High First Day of School
What's to say, Danger Guerrero is a talented and funny dude. Huge thanks to him for bringing the popular series over from The Fightins in 2012.
7. Dom Brown's Airplane Ride Bench-Clearer
One day Mike Meech hooked me up with a hot tip on this video he got from one of his pals at the Reading
6. The Cole Hamels Fruitini Photoshop Bonanza
Really needs no explanation. Cole Hamels is a pretty great dude.
5. Flyers v. Penguins memes and Photoshops, round 1 and round 2
The Penguins suck, so people love pictures making fun of them. BONUS GIF:
4. Phillies High: Shane Moves to California
Danger Guerrero with another facebreaker, as he managed to hilariously (and sadly) lampoon the end of the Shane Victorino era. No joke, I almost cried.
3. Roy Fights an Anaconda in the Amazon
It's almost as if the world lives out my idiot dreams. (Also thanks for pretending this post isn't from late-2011)
2. Awesome Emma's Cole Hamels Interview
Awesome E was the breakout star of 2012 and this post almost literally broke the bolg and the internet. A huge thanks to the The Hamels Foundation, Awesome E's mom, and G-Tori Pikachu Atari (not his real name) for making this happen.
1. The Worst Roy Halladay Bobblehead Ever
|I mean, I don't even ...|
This was the biggest post on the bolg this year, as for some reason the regular media LOVES ugly, awfully manufactured bobbleheads of bolg muses. Thanks again to Marc for bringing this to my attention in the first place. This nearly started some kind of international incident, which is 12 kinds of hilarious in retrospect.
I said as much at the beginning of this ridiculous list, but it's worth repeating: THANK YOU so much for following the bolg, all your kind words, and the support in general. I have a feeling 2013 will be better in terms of the Phils, and I know we're going to keep having a blast here at I Want to Go to the Zoo with Roy Halladay- the world's foremost bolg about wanting to go to the zoo with Phillies ace Roy Halladay (check us out online at zoowithroy.com)!
