Roy Halladay’s lovely wife Brandy is normally so jovial and bursting with charitable energy (pictured!) that I was literally stunned — STUNNED I tell you — when I heard she was crying on-air during the Blue Jays radio broadcast the other day.
Well it turns out, the asshole Blue Jays broadcasters made her cry. From MLB.com:
On Saturday, during the fifth inning of Toronto’s 6-2 win over Boston, Halladay’s wife, Brandy, stepped into the radio booth to promote the Lady Jays charity food drive being run by the players’ wives and girlfriends. The talk eventually turned to the reality at hand — that the Halladay family could have a new home in the near future.
“This very well could be our last homestand,” Brandy Halladay said on The FAN590. “If something happens before the Trade Deadline, I won’t be back. That’s difficult. That’s more than difficult. I just broke into tears four minutes ago. … It’s very difficult for everybody. … You’re making me cry now.“
Those guys in Toronto’s radio booth should be ashamed of themselves, making Brandy Halladay cry like that. It’s a sensitive subject, fellas, and I don’t think Brandy wants to talk about her future while she’s doing her charity drive for the Lady Jays. Show some cot damn respect for once.
Oh, and Brandy? Did I ever mention the fact that the Phillies wives are also extremely charitable and put together numerous fund-raisers throughout the year? I don’t have a definitive number, Brandy, but I’m almost positive that it’s more than the Blue Jays do.
I’m pretty sure that if you, your husband Roy, and that right arm of his would make Philadelphia (or the surrounding suburbs) your new home, nobody around here would make you cry.
Get it done, Amaro.
