"Rocky Time In Philly" is a story about Rocky after boxing. Rocky is retired from boxing but has lost his boxing fortune. He tries to get work but he is basically untrained and uneducated, never having finished high school. One of his jobs is a driver of a school bus for a prestigous MainLine Academy. The fifty student bus riders play tricks on the naive Rocky, but a prank gift results in his winning of a huge international lottery. He suffers a personal loss and sets up a charity with a gift of eighty percent of his prize, while embarking on a quest to get his high school diploma, GED. His family life changes dramtically, resulting in a triangle between himself, his son and his 'fiance.' Rocky is led into a possible political career as a nominee for a vacant seat in the House of Representatives. This possibility leads to family conflicts and opens a can of worms that seem to be ireconcileable. There is a romantic triangle that causes deep conflicts between himself, his son, and his son's former fiance.
