Chris Wheeler Loves the Bill Haley Classic, “Rock Around the Cock”
Posted by at 11:03 pm ET 33 Comments

I’ll bet Chris Wheeler regrets interrupting Tom McCarthy in the top of the ninth inning tonight so he could point out the song that was playing over the Tropicana Field PA system.

As Tommy Boy was spouting off the stats of Sergio Escalona, Wheels interjected to let the viewing audience know that the song they just played over the stadium speakers was one of his favorites from the roarin’ 50′s, “Rock Around the Clock” by Chester’s own Bill Haley & His Comets.

Only it didn’t quite come out that way. Sorry Muffin, I just had to:

    As soon as I heard him say this, I was thinking I need to email the fightins.. unfortunately I couldn’t recall the email address to do so.. nice work

  • Larry

    The split second that cock came out of his mouth…. I immediately thought of Meech. Wait, that didn’t cum out right.

    Wheels is a fucking ATTENTION WHORE!! He obviously frequents this site and thought of a new way to appear on it. “Rock around the cock, the clock” You’re not fooling anyone, Wheeler.

    As soon as I heard the slip-up last night, I knew the Fightins would have it covered! Wheels, what a tool! Love the loop at the end too, just in case you missed it the first time.

  • Gaze

    T-Shirt worthy?

    At the very least, there should be a shirt with a collage of “Wheelerisms”

  • Watrick

    I wouldn’t buy the shirt, but I would love to see something put together of Wheelerisms. I watch the Tour De France, and love reading blogs about Phil Liggetisms.

    Good catch.

    Honestly, I think Wheels’ version is much better than the original:

    One, two, three o’cock, four o’cock, rock,
    Five, six, seven o’cock, eight o’cock, rock,
    Nine, ten, eleven o’cock, twelve o’cock, rock,
    We’re gonna rock around the cock tonight.

    See? That’s so much better!

    The Phils definitely lead the league is “slide piece” (Sarge) and “middle in” (t-mar, wheels, and sarge) references.

    Wheels just said on air “I’m staying away from songs”…hahahaha got him again.

    Wheeler just acknowledged his little cock slip up last night

  • HB

    wheels is staying away from songs

  • Lynniemac

    This may be the closest you get to a direct mention:

    T-Mac comments on the music used for the 7th inning montage, and Wheels replies:

    “I’m staying away from songs.”
