‘F— the Mets:’ Phillies throw shade in locker room

During their Thursday night celebration in the locker room, the Phillies made the decision to disparage the Mets.

Garret Stubbs, the Phillies’ backup catcher, and a few of his teammates debuted their rendition of “Dixieland Delight” after the Phillies eliminated the Atlanta Braves from the NLDS.


The call and response song’s lyrics are provided below (you can view the video here, thanks to Alex Coffey of The Philadelphia Inquirer):

Holding her tensely against the wall

create some love (ALL NIGHT),

On a Mason-Dixon night, a little turtle was dovin’ (F— THE BRAVOS),

suits my life (AND THE NEXT PERSON WE PLAY),

Oh, you’re right (AND THE METS ALWAYS),

I love Dixieland music.

When the Phillies were eight games behind the Braves in the NL East on June 2 and seven games under.500, they could not have anticipated being in this situation. After eliminating Atlanta in four games, they are currently spraying champagne and drinking Budweisers.

Philadelphia wasn’t only showing off their jazzed-up rendition of Alabama’s country hit in their locker room celebration. Orion Kerkering, a rookie for the Phillies, made a sly jab at Braves infielder Orlando Arcia while sporting a “Atta boy” t-shirt in light blue. On the front, it reads, “Harper,” and on the back, “He wasn’t supposed to hear it.”

The phrase is a reference to Arcia’s “Ha-ha! Jake Mintz of FOX Sports said, “Atta boy, Harper,” after Bryce Harper was doubled off at first base to finish Game 2. In Game 3, after the two-time MVP smacked two home runs and glared at the infielder as he approached second, Arcia remarked, “He wasn’t supposed to hear it.”
