For more than four years, Phillies fans have marveled at the sarcasm, intentional typos and sophisticated doodles of Zoo With Roy, a blog about one fan's desperate plea to spend a day at the zoo with Roy Halladay.

See folks? Hard work does pay off. Set your sights high and maybe you too can someday waste a business day checking out exotic animals with a Cy Young winner.
