Curt Schilling on 38Pitches — My daughter, my one and only daughter, has worked her ass off playing sports the past 9-10 years. She’s loved it, and I’ve loved being able to both watch, and coach along the way.
Last week we were told she’d been accepted to college and will begin playing softball there next year.
Clearly an incredibly proud day. …
And of course, like any dad in the modern world I said so. …
And tweets with the word rape, bloody underwear and pretty much every other vulgar and defiling word you could likely fathom began to follow. …
“The Sports Guru’? Ya he’s a DJ named Adam Nagel (DJ is a bit strong since he’s on the air for 1 hour a week) on Brookdale Student Radio at Brookdale Community College. How do you think that place feels about this stud representing their school? You don’t think this isn’t going to be a nice compilation that will show up every single time this idiot is googled the rest of his life? What happens when a potential woman he’s after googles and reads this?
The other clown? He’s VP of the Theta Xi fraternity at Montclair State University. I gotta believe if Theta Xi is cool with a VP of one of their chapters acting like this I’d prefer to have no one I know in it. Also, does anyone attending Montclair State University have a student handbook? If so can you pass it along because I am pretty sure there are about 90 violations in this idiots tweets.
I stopped because the rest was more of the same. And while these, to me as a dad, are just stupid and vile in ways you can’t fathom, they aren’t alone.
This is the story Dennis & Callahan were all over Monday morning. And in the same way they couldn’t read a single one of the tweets Curt Schilling posted on his blog from these creepshows, I can’t put them here unless I want to get WEEI.com blocked at every decent workplace in America. But I recommend you click the link to Schilling’s site and read them. But as it said above the doors to Dante’s “Inferno,” “Abandon all hope, ye who enter here.” It’s a journey into the subhuman mind, and you’re not going to feel good about your fellow man when you come out the other side.
While I’m not entirely convinced I would’ve done what Schilling did here, I do applaud him for having the courage of his convictions to out these scumbags. You just obviously hope that the repercussions on this will only fall on the dark, soulless cowards like DJ Adam Nagel and the pride of Theta Xi, Sean MacDonald, and not Schilling or his family. What he seemed to doing here is betting on the collective goodwill of humanity to defeat a small number of these troglodytes, and so far the gamble appears to be paying off. Check the Twitter page of either one of these guys and you see their castles being stormed by fed-up people demanding they answer for themselves, while both guys are just in hiding someplace. So, well played, Schill.
Which, by the way, is typical behavior of your Internet trolling classes. They somehow talk themselves into the delusion that all communication is one way. That social media exists as a megaphone for them to shout from, and the rest of will listen but can’t yell back. And when they are held accountable for the stuff that comes out of their keypads, they jump down a spider hole and act like they’re the victims.
So apparently Nagel and MacDonald won’t do the right thing, defend themselves and explain why they want to sexually assault a college girl for the crime of having a famous father who’s proud of her. And if they don’t, then it’s up to the rest of us to do the right thing by going all scorched Earth on them until they break. And for the people who employ these dirtbags to fire them or explain why.
Curt Schilling didn't back down when twitter trolls took shots at his daughter. Dino, Gerry and Kirk applaud Schill's stand.

Schilling tweeted Wednesday: Congrats to Gabby Schilling who will pitch for the Salve Regina Seahawks next year!!
The former Red Sox pitcher said he expected some jock humor to follow, and he was not disappointed. However, when he started to see tweets “with the words ‘rape,’ ‘bloody underwear’ and pretty much ever other vulgar and defiling word you could likely fathom,” he decided to act.
Schilling wrote a response Sunday on his 38 Pitches blog in which he expressed his disgust with the behavior. He identified two of the offenders as a Brookdale Community College (Lincroft, N.J.) radio host and a Montclair State University fraternity vice president, and seven others as college athletes.
The ESPN analyst (who accepted an invitation to join Dennis & Callahan at 9 a.m. Monday) noted that he expects to be the subject of insults from Democrats, Yankees fans and “people that don’t like the sound of my voice,” and he notes that “that’s a pretty big group.” But, he questions, are putrid comments about his daughter “even remotely OK? In ANY world? At ANY time?”
Wrote Schilling: My daughter comes to me beyond upset. She didn’t do anything, she never said anything, yet she’s now receiving personal messages with guys saying things to her, well let’s just say I can’t repeat and I’m getting beyond angry thinking about it. Her boyfriend, a wicked good hockey player who has a fighting streak I absolutely love is going out of his mind to be let off his leash but unlike the athletes tweeting this stuff he understands the potential consequences of his actions and knows the time and place will hopefully come when he can make it right on his own terms.
These boys have yet to understand one of life’s most important lessons. In the real world you get held accountable for the things you say and if you are not careful that can mean some different things.
How on earth do you guys know who’s on the other end? What they’re thinking?
This is a generation of kids who have grown up behind the monitor and keyboard. The real world has consequences when you do and say things about others. We’re at a point now where you better be sure who you’re going after.
Added Schilling: The ignorance and pathetic lack of morals or of any integrity is astounding.
The first 500 fans to log on to the team’s website at 9 a.m. Monday each will get a pair of tickets.
The former Celtic was traded from the Nets to his original NBA team last week and was welcomed by a sellout crowd at the Target Center.
“The response and support I’ve received from Wolves fans since my return to Minnesota has been nothing short of amazing. It’s been unbelievable,’ Garnett said in a statement on the team’s website. ‘As a gesture of thanks, I would like to treat some fans to Monday night’s game against the Clippers. Love you all, and thanks for the love. Enjoy the game on me.”
“I know we’re all going to go at some time, but I had gotten to the point where I really thought Minnie was going to live forever,” White Sox owner Jerry Reinsdorf said. “There has never been a better ambassador for the game or for the White Sox than Minnie.”
Minoso, nicknamed the “Cuban Comet,” broke into the majors in 1949, two years after Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier. He played 12 of his 17 seasons with the White Sox, hitting .304 during his time in Chicago. The team retired his No. 9 in 1983 and erected a statue of him outside U.S. Cellular Field.
Said President Barack Obama, a longtime White Sox fan: “Minnie may have been passed over by the Baseball Hall of Fame during his lifetime, but for me and for generations of black and Latino young people, Minnie’s quintessentially American story embodies far more than a plaque ever could.”

Butch gets into the Swiharts', Betts', Xanders' and more on this team and if it's time for these guys to shine. He also provides his thoughts on if it's the right time to deal Swihart for an ace. Butch thinks this team will be fine defensively which is important for an unproven pitching staff, however the infamous Tony from Bridgewater calls in to take him to task on this assumption.
