On the fifth anniversary of the Red Sox' victory over the Yankees in Game 7 of the 2004 American League Championship Series, former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling looked back on his performance in "The Bloody Sock" game on Oct. 19, 2004. Schilling recalled on his 38 Pitches blog the experience of seeing how his dislocated ankle tendon would react to a first-of-its-kind surgery, both before and more vividly during the game.
"The sole of my shoe and my sock were soaked with blood," Schilling wrote. "You ever walk in the rain in your socks? That’s how it felt. Problem was that it was cold out, too, so that made the blood cold and I could feel it on half my foot."

FOXBORO - The Joey Galloway experiment has come to an end in Foxboro. The Patriots confirmed this morning they have released the 15-year NFL veteran wideout. Galloway, 37, was a healthy scratch the last three games. Galloway appeared in just two games, catching seven balls for 67 yards but no touchdowns. The team also announced they have parted ways with tight end Michael Matthews. The third year tight end out of Georgia Tech, acquired via trade for an undisclosed draft pick from the Giants on Sept. 5, played in three games but did not catch a pass for the Patriots. Since both were released by today's 4 p.m. trading deadline, they become free agents and are able to sign with any team. For more, visit the football blog, It Is What It Is.
