About ZWR


I Want to Go to the Zoo with Roy Halladay (aka “ZooWithRoy” or “ZWR”) is the world's foremost bolg about having gone to the zoo with former Phillies ace and 2010 NL Cy Young Award Winner Roy Halladay. Yup, that's right, I went to the zoo with Roy Halladay on August 8, 2014.

In 2011 it was voted the best Phillies blog [sic] on the whole entire internet by its fans and peers, and has been featured by news & media sources such as The New York Times, The Washingtonian, SI.com, Deadspin, CSN Philly's Lunch Break (a bunch of times actually NBD), WHYYNBC Sports (also, I guess, here), Good Morning America, Fox Sports Live, the BBC, The Guardian (g'day mates!), and Time Magazine. I also have had beer brewed in my name by an Iron Hill Brewery location.  FURTHER, ZWR was honored as part of the 2011 Webby Awards. Oh, and I reached an agreement to partner up with Philly.com. Yup, the online home of Philadelphia's two largest and most historic newspapers is publishing this sort of genius.

I guess what I'm getting at is that this site's pretty tremendous, and tons of people like to talk about it. What started as one idiot's bolg about a silly dream has evolved into a community--a shared experience that tries to hold onto the charm of fan-hood while producing humorous, relevant content.

About that time I was on ESPN
Oh, yes. Chief editor ZWR was even the subject of an interview on ESPN's First Take. I'm not even kidding- ESPN. This actually happened (don't ask me why they played circus music):

"...the incomparable zoowithroy.com."

"I’ve really never enjoyed watching the Phillies in years past as much as I have this year, and I don’t think I’m alone when I say that ZWR is largely responsible for it."
