He said - you said I said. BS!!! I am sick of the media in this country. No one can get a story right anymore. Chet Huntley & David Brinkley would never have messed up like this. Check your GD sources man. I like Gary Thorne. He does a very nice job calling play-by-play in the Little League World Series and Regular Season ESPN TV Games. He is a GREAT Hockey announcer.
BUT - Gary --- stay a way from the BS rumor mill - PLEASE!
Another outsider comes to Boston and claims to 'be in the know". We all know that the SOK WAS BLODDY! Hell Schill missed almost the entire 2005 season. Now this story is part of a huge mill of chat on the talk waves. It is fodder for the haters and rumor mill churn.
Leave the monumental effort made by a true Boston Hero - Curt Schilling alone!
