Boston Red Sox hero Curt Shilling was the victim again of misinformed Democratic politicians as a former US Rhode Island Senator now running for Governor questioned Shillings famous "Bloody Sock" victory in 2004 while slamming RI for granting a loan to the beloved NE ballplayer.
Shilling was also slammed by Martha Coakley, Massachusetts Attorney General during her 'slam dunk' race for Ted "Have a drink and pull this finger' Kennedy's senate seat when she said Schilling was an 'avid Yankee fan' when told he was voting for Scott Brown who blew her out of the batter's box in what was said to be the worst run campaign in Democratic History.
Shilling, just one of the many heroes in the Red Sox unbelievable run to the World Series pitched and won game 6 of the playoffs against the NY Yankees pitching on a torn ankle tendon that bled for the entire game.
In that series, shilling won 2 games enabling the Sox to come from 3 games down to sweep, and then continue onto the World Series where they then blew out the Cardinals in 4 straight games, with Shilling pitching and winning the 2nd game.
He is the only pitcher in Major League history to pitch on a world series team in his 20's, 30's and 40's, has a winning percentage of .846 and a record
of 11-2 in post season play.
Recent controversy was stirred when Shilling was turned down in Massachusetts for a small business loan, although officials there said it certainly wasn't because of his political party affiliation. (hmmm, hmmm, hmmm)
Rhode Island, totally bankrupt thanks to years of Mafia Influence and drunken ramblings and car crashes by Congressman ' Patches' Kennedy who was stashed there to prevent any further embarrassment to Massachusetts, jumped at the chance to bring some income and employment to the state, offering a $75M start up loan for Shilling's Internet Gaming Company.
Massachusetts has been cash strapped due to Governor Deval Patrick's mandate to make Boston a Sanctuary City, provide insurance and driver's licenses for illegal aliens, and support Obama's Auntie Zulu who had been living there illegally despite two court orders to be deported until in a closed door session this year (and after the presidential election) she was granted amnesty, an upgraded apartment, maid service, and chauffeured delivery for shopping trips...and a cell phone. (hmmmm, hmmmm, hmmm)
Meanwhile, most of the media has overlooked Massachusetts' legislators, who run up to NH in State cars to buy their booze and skip the sales and excise tax, legislators slow to be prosecuted even after being filmed stuffing $100 bills down their ample bra, robbing the copy machine in the court house,
or driving around their constituency either drunk, or when sober groping
women on the sidewalk, not to mention taking them on one way dolphin encounters.
After John Kerry weighed in on Shillings defection to RI in an unfavorable way, but prior to his latest scandal regarding avoiding sales and excise taxes on his $7M yacht in the midst of a recession and rising state taxes, the ever
gutsy Shilling had only this to say: I can show anyone who questions my injury the X-rays of my ankle, and the famous sock is now in Cooperstown in the Hall of Fame....I can assure you it wasn't KETCHUP on my sock...what can Kerry show you....his ass?"
As of this report the Senator was still married and being supported by the
Heinz Ketchup Divorcee only proving once again Ketchup & Hot Dogs really
are a matter of taste.
