I have jumped off a bridge about this high. In North Conway, NH. With every instinct for self-preservation in my body telling me not to. Because it’s terrifying. The thought of these guys swinging on ropes and dunking balls instead of just getting drunk on the river banks with these girls is the nightmare fuel that brings back the fear of that day. The operative word here is “insane.”

The war between New England and ESPN spilled over into a new battlefront Sunday night when the Worldwide Leader showed the “30 for 30″ documentary about the 2004 ALCS but edited out Curt Schilling’s historically gutsy Game 6. Obviously, they did it strictly out of spite. Because as I said on the air Monday, telling the story of the Red Sox comeback without mentioning Schilling is like a cable movie network showing “Shawshank Redemption” and editing out the part where Andy escapes. (Should I have spoiler altered, that? Never mind.)

Schilling, to his credit, mocked and ridiculed his former bosses. Which the petty little ingrates deserved. But now the new skirmish in this war just went nuclear.  The wives are involved.

The Inside Track in the Herald has heard from Shonda Schilling. And she is having none of ESPN’s crap:

“Couples who get divorced don’t usually stoop this low to get the last word in,” Shonda said in an email to the Track.

“I know (ESPN’s) brand is to be true to Disney. That doesn’t mean you have to act like a child. I don’t remember any Disney films I ever saw that said to try to embarrass you if you want to be heard. Just one last thing, ESPN, people are not mad at what you did they are embarrassed for you.”

Now, to be clear, a wife sticking up for her husband is a delicate dance. There are certain inviolable rules. And if you break any of them, you risk humiliating him far worse than the rest of the world ever could. Fortunately, Shonda checked every box.

For starters, a wife can never fight a battle the husband won’t. And since Schilling fired the first shot in this one, she’s clear. Second, she cannot ever pick the fight with someone her husband cares about. The divorce courts are filled with ex-couples where the Mrs. went hard after the man’s friends, family and sidepieces. That is clearly not the case here. If Shonda had thrown shade at any of Curt’s former teammates or somebody, it would be one thing. But obviously if he saw the studio in Bristol on fire, he probably wouldn’t call 911. Mostly you don’t ever want your wife acknowledging that you might possibly be in the wrong. Even a little bit. In a time of war, you want a wartime consigliere. Not a spouse telling you there are two sides to every story or any of that nonsense. Mission accomplished there.

All in all, I’d say Shonda did a hell of a job. This is the kind of wife you want to have in a foxhole with you. Not taking the lead but making damn well being at your side or having your back. So well done, Schillings. Any time you rip those duplicitous weasels at ESPN, you strike a blow for us all.
