How Many Times Will Wheels Mention The Size Of Petco Park This Weekend?

20 Jul

During yesterday’s game against the San Diego Padres were all treated to multiple mentions of the size of Petco Park by our main man behind the mic Chris Wheeler. In the interest of fun and just a little bit of malice, I am going to run a guessing game. So fellow fans, how many times will Wheels mention the size of the ballpark? “This ballpark is huge’ , ‘look at the size of this ballpark’, ‘you don’t hit many homers in this field’, or some facsimile of this phrase. Also acceptable are patent-pending Wheels chuckles or guffaws at deep flyouts being caught on the warning track. However, if he does a guffaw then a phrase, that is still only one mention. Each mention must be on a different play or plate appearance.

The fan closest to the actual number, over or under, will win a HUGE (like Safeco) T-Shirt courtesy of this blog (other fine Wheels T-Shirts are available at Chris Wheeler Glossary.com). Make sure to leave a real email address in the comments section of this post so I can contact you. And if this is a complete failure, well I’ll just keep the freaking shirt!

    I’m willing to bet he’ll say something to the effect of “This park is just yooog” 9 times in the remaining three games.

    I’ll go with 11 times.

    I’m gonna say 5,4,&3 Fri., Sat., and Sun. respectively to equal 12 times total.

    You guys are way underestimating wheels, I say 23 times.

    My guess is that Wheels will bring up the park’s size 18 times.

    16 times is my guess

    So how many times did he mention it?

    I have yet to watch the 2nd game. I have it on tape and have had a difficult time getting around to watching it. I will have a post up tomorrow or Wednesday at the latest.
