Curt Schilling was one of my favorite baseball players in the 2000’s. Whether you love or hate the Red Sox, anybody who follows baseball surely remembers the Red Sox ending their 900 year title drought partly because Curt Schilling wanted it so bad that he pitched throughout the playoffs with a tendon so bad that his foot bled and turned his sock blood red. Regardless of the pain and the blood, his performance helped the Red Sox win the 2004 World Series.
He was a dominant force before and after that and the ‘Bloody Sock’ is one of the icons that shows his talent and his heart of a champion.
Unfortunately, that didn’t carry through for very long in his post-baseball career.
