Dreams do come true, people. And penguins.
We'd like to send a huge congratulations over to the penguin at Zoo with Roy for completing his lifelong dream by going to the Philadelphia Zoo today with Roy Halladay.
You can read Zoo with Roy's victory speech here. It's a doozy.
If you're not familiar with Zoo with Roy, you're probably living under a rock, but we'll be nice and explain. Zoo with Roy is a whimsical blog started about four years ago by a Phillies fan (sometimes thought to be a penguin) who wanted to go to the zoo with Roy Halladay. Pretty simple stuff. They devoted much of the last four years to face-breaking, documenting Roy's unmatched training habits, and drawing MS Paint images of animals.
Hopefully you all took my advice and staked out the zoo and were able to see both Doc and the penguin and the monkeys and the snakes and all the other great zoo stuff.
Had the strangest dream last night! Not sure if it really happened! pic.twitter.com/1ZFXWfO6vi— Roy Halladay (@RoyHalladay) August 8, 2014
The 2014 Phillies may be an atrocity, but it's moments like this that make being a Phillies fan worthwhile. Congrats, penguin.
But this photo will obviously lead to so many more questions. Did they ride the zoo balloon? Did they get funnel cake? We look forward to future Zoo with Roy dispatches about going to the zoo with Roy Halladay.
And remember, if you want your own piece of Roy, you can get his bobblehead tonight at the Phillies-Mets game at Citizens Bank Park.
