This one comes from the Associated Press. And it isn't just any part of the AP -- this comes from the section known as "THE BIG STORY." If you want to buy Curt Schilling's bloody sock, well, here is your chance, dammit:
Former Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling — whose video game company underwent a spectacular collapse into bankruptcy last year — is selling the blood-stained sock he wore during the 2004 World Series.
Oh, man. Oh, man. I need this. For reasons.
The bloody sock is one of two that sent Schilling into the annals of baseball lore in 2004.
The other was from Game 6 of the American League Championship Series, when Schilling pitched against the New York Yankees with an injured ankle. That sock is said to have been discarded in the trash at Yankees Stadium.
The one being sold is from the second game of the World Series, which the Red Sox won that year for the first time in 86 years.
Wait, wait, wait. This isn't even the real bloody sock. This is just a sock that happens to have blood on it. If you want one of those, I can get you one. Give me a couple minutes and $12.
From the Boston Herald:
The big question is how much it's worth. Estimates have ranged from $25,000 to over $1 million.
"Senator? You can have my answer now if you want. My answer is this: nothing. Not even the typical value of a secondhand sock stained with blood, which I would appreciate if you would put up yourself."
