Schilling didn’t read the script

Curt Schilling didn’t read the script tonight. I don’t know where this Yankees-scoring-twice-in-the-first business came from.

Here’s how it was supposed to go.1. Schilling hits Derek "Mariah Carey isn’t good enough for me" Jeter with the first pitch.
2. Schilling hits A-spoiled-brat-Rod with the second pitch.
3. Schilling hits Sheffield with the third pitch.
4. Schilling fans Matsui on three pitches.
5. Schilling throws one pitch over the head of Bernie "Jim Edmonds isn’t as good of a center fielder as me" Williams. Then fans him on three pitches. Looking.
6. Schilling fans Jorge Posada on three pitches.

That’s how you become the toast of Boston. As well as everyplace else where the Yankees are hated. Which is everywhere.

    I think he got it last night. As far as sports go, one of the best playing in pain showings to date. They had stiches holding his tendon in place, which by the end of his showing, left his ankle and sock soaked in blood.

      He wrote his own script that night. They tried absolutely everything they could think of to put him back together enough for one game, and yeah, he made it.

      As bad of shape as his leg was in, it’s remarkable he was able to do anything at all this series. I tip my cap to him. He went out and won a ballgame with a leg injury a lot of people wouldn’t be willing to walk on.
