The Time Roy Halladay and Bassmaster Skeet Reese Rescued a Naked Man Who Had Been Attacked by an Anaconda

That there is the devil Chris Carpenter (Nike hat) and Roy Halladay (Quicksilver?) on their fishing trip with bassmaster Skeet Reese earlier this month.


‘Tis true. 

I’m no longer shocked by any Roy Halladay story. Beginning spring training in December… running in nine degree weather in shorts…  long-tossing at Citizens Bank Park while an ice rink is being built around him… and now this one. 

Last night, our friend Matt Rappa, who runs the Baseball Talk: Philadelphia Facebook page, dug up the above picture of Doc and Carpenter on their fishing trip with Reese. The picture itself is post-worthy, though it’s just photographic evidence of the friendship we already knew so much about.

Reese had posted the picture earlier in the month on his website, SkeetReeseInc.com, where he blogged a bit about the experience… and his hunting excursion with Roy. That’s where this happened: 

We had plenty of wildlife encounters though. Along with the fishing, we decided to go hunting one night, and Carpenter and B.J. both shot a caiman; which is like an alligator. Me and Doc Halladay even came across a local, sitting bare naked on a tree by the river. What we were able to figure out is that he was fishing in the river for tropical fish to sell for aquariums when he got attacked by an anaconda.

The snake apparently bit him on the ass but he was able to free himself before the snake wrapped him up. Instead the snake wrapped around his motor on the back of his little 14 foot dugout canoe and tore it off the back of his boat. Doc and I helped him gather his gear and flip the boat back over and then towed him home. You could definitely see the bite mark on his ass, but he was able to fight it off; amazing.

 

Yeah, so Roy rescued a naked man who had been bitten by an anaconda in the Amazon. We’ll assume he just stared one of the world's largest snakes into submission.

Thankfully, Roy didn’t get bit, or otherwise injured. Carpenter did– he hurt his foot, and another member of the crew was stung by a sting ray. Serves Carp right for that whole Game 5 thing…

    did you really end that article with a closing of chris carpenter hurt his foot fishing without other details?
    …it leaves me with a feeling that it’s one of your corny jokes, but it could very well be true? If it’s true it looks like you are too lazy to finish the story or find out what happened.
    The only coherent thought of this post was from the quote by Reese.

    One guy narrowly escaped an anaconda attack, carpenter hurt his foot, while another guy got stung by a sting ray? We should keep a better eye on doc in the offseason

    Later Roy hunted the anaconda down, killing it with his bare hands, the snake but up a fight, but it was only delaying the inevitable. Roy halladay is now the proud owner of an anaconda skin bath robe….. the man is a legend

    It’s like the end of Romancing the Stone where Michael Douglas shows up wearing alligator boots. Except now Doc has one new condom.

    I heard that dude really didn’t get attacked by an actual anaconda snake. He thought he did, but in reality he accidentally walked in Halladay’s path while Roy was taking a piss in the river…
