***Disclaimer: I wrote this piece before game 4 last night. Or as I like to call it, "the worst single game choke in the history of sports". Nice job, Lakers and especially Kobe. You just lost a title because you couldn't guard Eddie fucking House or James fucking Posey. This hurts even more knowing that the Cavs could have beaten these green pricks. Dammit. Nice job losing to Doc Rivers. At least this article is more anti-Schilling than it is pro-rape. Fuck this. I hate Boston so much.
My old nemesis is at it again. This story is a few days old now but I've needed time to digest it anyway. Curt Schilling (pictured copping a feel on a toddler) has "written" about Kobe Bryant and his sketchy behavior on the court during game 2 in Boston. First of all, let's get one thing straight, Curt Schilling is NOT a blogger. He may have his own blog, which I will never link to, but that doesn't make him one of us. Much like Mark Cuban who also writes to the masses, and I can't say this enough, Schilling is not like me. They are not like "us". A blogger pours their heart and soul into their sites hoping that maybe, just maybe, people will read their material. Most of us aren't compensated and those that are aren't hanging out with strippers 24/7 or whatever millionaires do. When you make millions upon millions of dollars, you aren't in our class anymore. So let's just stop the insanity of calling Wide Load a blogger.
I have made it known many times in the past regarding how much comtempt I hold toward Schilling. I'm not going to get back into it either. He's a loudmouth. He's a drama queen. He's a baby. He's not a hall of famer. He sometimes shows up here in the comments section to be my foil. And when it comes to his remarks about Kobe Bryant, he's out of his league, too. His words:
“He’d yell at someone, make a point, or send a message, turn and walk away, and more than once the person on the other end would roll eyes or give a ‘whatever dude’ look.”
Curt is right about one thing, Kobe isn't a good teammate at all. He's not breaking any news. The problem is that he tries to sweep his claims under the rug by saying that that was just his opinion from sitting courtside. First of all, I bet he hadn't watched the Lakers play more than 3 games all season. Secondly, eventhough you say aren't trying to, you DID roll Kobe under the bus. And it is completely unnecessary. Exactly what is the point of crossing sports and calling out the "best player in the league"? That's like me going only to the French Open final, watch Roger Federer lose again, and write a long post about how this Federer guy freaking sucks. He couldn't even beat some skateboarding pansy from Spain!
Curt, we've had this talk before. Please shut the fuck up. You don't know what you're talking about. How you become an expert at judging basketball player facial expressions and meanings as a pitcher is something that I will likely never understand. Don't you have some socks to spill ketchup on anyway? (Side note, I am not a Steelers fan but I love me some Big Ben. One horrible night I was flipping through the channels and saw Schilling talking to Chris Rose on Best Damn. Except Dough Boy was wearing a Big Ben jersey...it broke my heart. I was devastated.)
In conclusion, when Kobe was told that he was called out by a 400 pound pitcher for being a bad teammate, his reply to the media was: "Go Yankees!" I couldn't agree more, Kobe Bean. Although I probably would have added, "and I hope that a nuclear bomb goes off in downtown Boston ridding us of the worst people on the planet."
We'll be back Monday, I'm still not certain about how next week is going to work out...stay tuned, I'll keep you posted. Curt Schilling is a bag of rusty dicks.
