Just to clarify, I WAS rooting for the Red Sox over the Yankees in the 2004 ALCS. But, when I saw the bloody sock of Curt Schilling, I was not convinced. The announcers made such a big deal of it. Now, a few years later, Gary Thorne (an announcer I respect more than most) claims it was fake. I had thought that when it happened, and these new allegations don't really make me more or less sure. But I find it funny that it is brought up now. I really don't care for the BoSox (the only team I DO care about is my hometown Minnesota Twins) but this story makes me cringe. Why would someone fake this? Did he fake this? Makes me laugh, but I would love to hear your own ideas about this.
