  • Curt Schilling Letter to BHOF (Does Not Want to Be Considered Anymore)

    I want to share with everyone the letter I wrote to the folks at the Hall of Fame yesterday. They’ve been otherworldly kind and gracious in every way possible and I’ll be forever grateful to them and for that. This was written privately and for their eyes only but I have always been fine with anyone knowing how I feel and what I think. “Hey guys. Couple things. First off I am not sure I can express my level of gratitude and sincere appreciation at the graciousness, kindness and desire on all your parts to help me navigate this process....
  • MLB: No new Hall electees for first time since 1960

    For the first time since 1960 -- and just the seventh time since the first election in 1936 -- the National Baseball Hall of Fame will not have a new group of electees in 2021. Yet because the Class of 2020’s induction was pushed back a year by the coronavirus pandemic, there will still be entrants welcomed into the hallowed Hall this summer. The Baseball Writers’ Association of America announced Tuesday night on MLB Network that none of the 25 players on the 2021 ballot received at least 75 percent of votes -- the threshold required for entry. Starting pitcher...

    Loverro's comments on Schilling are near the end of the article, which is why I didn't auto excerpt or link the article. He referenced (and criticized) Schilling's tweets that it was Antifa that caused the Capitol ruckus.Use a search engine to search "Thom Loverro"+"Curt Schilling". I find Loverro's comments surprising given the WT's supposed conservative agenda.

    SNIP I wouldn’t enjoy a celebration day for Curt Schilling, whose support for the January 6 insurrection attempt at the Capitol building marked his latest display of hellbound behavior. None of those, it should be stressed, which also include calling for the murder of journalists or mocking trans people, qualify as “conservative.” They’re just hateful. Yet can the Plaque Gallery, which already houses all sorts of bigots, miscreants and rogues — long ago rendering the ballot’s “integrity, sportsmanship, character” wording irrelevant — fully tell the game’s story without including Schilling? It can’t, in my opinion. SNIP 8. Curt Schilling If...

    Famed Boston Red Sox pitcher-turned-conservative commentator Curt Schilling said Tuesday that American International Group (AIG) had cancelled his insurance plan due to his "social media profile." "We will be just fine, but wanted to let Americans know that @AIGinsurance canceled our insurance due to my 'Social Media profile,'" Schilling said on Twitter. Schilling shared a screenshot purportedly showing an AIG employee telling him that while they appreciate that he's been a "long time AIG client since 2004" "it was a management decision that was made collectively between underwriting and marketing teams that could not be overturned."

    Conservative Commentator Says AIG Canceled His Insurance Over His Social Media Posts Deplatforming reaches new heights of absurdity. Conservative commentator and former baseball star Curt Schilling says that AIG canceled his insurance policy over his “social media profile,” a new level of deplatforming not yet seen. “We will be just fine, but wanted to let Americans know that @AIGinsurance canceled our insurance due to my “Social Media profile,” tweeted Schilling. “The agent told us it was a decision made by and with their PR department in conjunction with management,” he added.

    President Trump touted former pitcher Curt Schilling on Tuesday after he announced he was “absolutely considering” running for Congress as a Republican in Arizona. “Curt Schilling, a great pitcher and patriot, is considering a run for Congress in Arizona. Terrific!” Trump tweeted. The president’s Twitter encouragement comes just hours after the Arizona Republic published a report saying Schilling was mulling a run.

    “Curt Schilling deserves to be in the Baseball Hall of Fame,” President Trump tweeted Sunday evening. “Great record, especially when under pressure and when it mattered most. Do what everyone in Baseball knows is right!”  Curt Shilling didn’t get into Cooperstown this year but maybe next year or someday. Perhaps his improved voting numbers are due to the Trump effect. Or his support for Trump has made him persona non grata in baseball circles. He wasn’t selected but, Mariano Rivera, the greatest reliever in history, was on the ballot for the first time and received 100% of the writers’ votes, a...

    The former Red Sox pitcher joins Roseanne Barr as a promoter of perhaps the Internet’s most convoluted tangle of Trump-friendly hoo-hah. Baseball great Curt Schilling has quite a story he’d like to share—and it’s not about his famous “bloody sock” World Series game. On Tuesday, the retired Boston Red Sox pitcher promoted a video on his Facebook page explaining the pro-Trump QAnon conspiracy, which posits that President Trump and his allies in the military are about to sweep away a cabal of globalist elites responsible for all the evil in the world. The byzantine QAnon theory, which centers on anonymous...
  • Why are ESPN, MGM and Other American Companies Purposely Committing Suicide?

    It's happening all over America. Liberal CEOs appear to be purposely committing brand suicide. Their cardinal sin is arrogance and ignorance. Remarkably, they don't even understand their own customers’ base. ESPN and Vegas casino giant MGM Resorts International should serve as Exhibit A. Vegas and ESPN have much in common. ESPN has committed suicide with its obsession with liberal, progressive, politically correct beliefs. The fact is Vegas’s core audience is exactly the same as ESPN’s. Vegas’s audience has three key demographics: A) Middle America. Overwhelmingly this group voted for Donald Trump. B) Conventioneers. This group is composed of business owners,...

    Former baseball star Curt Schilling is reportedly planning to run for Senate in Massachusetts against incumbent Elizabeth Warren, and he’s wasting no time attacking his would-be opponent. Warren, a favorite politician among the liberal activists, represents “everything we hate about politics,” the former Red Sox pitcher said during an radio interview on the Larry O’Connor show. Schilling thinks he could be successful against Warren because of the “disconnect” between the politics of average voters in Massachusetts and the senator’s left-wing beliefs. “As I talk about potentially running for Senate and running against ‘Lieawatha,’ I’ve talked about the fact that the...

    No kidding. Very happy news for me yesterday: Detroit Tiger Ivan “Pudge” Rodriguez was voted into the Hall of Fame. (What? He played for some other teams as well? I don’t care.) Magglio Ordonez deserved better than his one-year-and-out fate. Carlos Guillen deserved better than zero votes. You may disagree, and you might even care about players who never played for the Tigers, although I can’t imagine why. But that’s one of the things the Hall of Fame elections are for - debate among fans.

    Baseball legend Curt Schilling has been slammed for praising a T-shirt that advocates lynching journalists. The All-Star pitcher, 49, who is a vocal Donald Trump supporter, shared a photo of the 'offensive' T-shirt on Twitter. The black top features the slogan: 'Rope. Tree. Journalist. Some assembly required.' Alongside the photo, Schilling commented: 'Ok, so much awesome here...'

According to folks passing by, there were around 10 or 15 people in attendance to see the three-time World Series champ. He was pictured with a dejected gaze on his face.

    The former major league pitcher has had political aspirations for some time Curt Schilling, who pitched for parts of 20 seasons in the major leagues and won 216 career games, has announced his intention to run for U.S. Senate against Democrat Elizabeth Warren in Massachusetts. Here's what Schilling said on Tuesday: Schilling, 49, self-identifies as a conservative, and has established himself as a controversial political gadfly since retiring from baseball in 2007. Schilling previously said he would run for president in 2020 or 2024. As for Warren, 67, she's in her first term in the Senate. In 2012, she defeated...

    You want a friend in Washington? Get a dog. That is a quote often attributed to President Harry S Truman, although he was not the first, or the last, politician to utter the remark. It is a remark that could also be used for politics in general, as in: You want a friend in politics. Get a dog, or maybe two. You will need all the friends you can get
  • Why Hasn't ESPN Disciplined Jemele Hill For Political Tweet About The Orlando Shootings?

    Earlier this year, ESPN sent a memo to its employees that tells them to refrain from making political statements. But it seems as if the policy has a double standard. Jemele Hill, a co-host on ESPN2′s His & Hers, tweeted Sunday that it’s wrong for Americans to condemn homophobia in Islamic cultures, given the discrimination that gay people have faced in the United States. The tweet was a response to the reaction following the Orlando shootings, where a gunman pledged allegiance to ISIS before killing 49 people and wounding 53 more inside of a popular gay nightclub early Sunday morning.
