In typical humble style, Roy actually met us in the parking lot all by himself in a rented gold Chevy Malibu (yes please).
I mean, can you imagine being the donkey with the clip-on tie behind the rental car counter when ROY HALLADAY shows up and then you have the NERVE to offer him a gold Chevy Malibu?
“Ohai, Mr. Halladay, welcome back to Philly! The teal Miata isn’t available tonight so we switched you to a Malibu. If you want GPS that’ll be $30/day extra. Don’t worry, though, hehe…everything will be PERFECT for you I’m sure, haha.” GO SCREW, KID, YOU BLEW IT WE ALL HATE YOUR FACE.
I still can’t decide if this is the greatest thing ever, or saddest thing ever because the highlight of the Phillies’ season is their retired Cy Young winner staging selfies with stuffed animals in a closed zoo gift shop. Anyway, go read the recap, it’s great.
