While I cannot say enough about the tremendous accomplishment Halladay achieved today, I'd be remiss to not mention the ultimate 'You called it' moment of all-time.
It was brought to my attention that an ESPN message board thread was started at 7:16pm with the title "Roy Halladay Perfect Game Alert". The first message read '27 batters to go'. Every few batters, another post was added reminding you how many batters were to go. Others joined in, first being sarcastic and laughing the whole thing off, but as the game went on, people were counting it down.
It's quite possibly the most epic message board thread ever - and it is 100% legit. See the complete thread HERE. dtboy1234 - whoever you are - I give you a standing ovation. Well done sir. Now go play the lottery, bet your bank account on RED, and predict the Flyers as Stanley Cup Champions for us.
*many thanks from TWW friend and reader Troy for giving us the heads up
