Ms. N4N and I were traveling out-of-town late last week when I flipped on the hotel TV and caught some kind of retrospective chatter on ESPN about Curt Schilling. I immediately suspected he had announced his retirement -- and that might more or less be the case, although not necessarily.
I wish Curt well. Say what you will about the guy, and he's got a lot of haters, both inside and outside the game, but the man is clutch. We couldn't have done it in 2004 without him.
On a happier note, Jerry Remy is due to be celebrated at Fenway tonight for his 20 years with NESN. Although Remy is a bit heavy-handed at times with his Depression-era commercializing, Don Orsillo and he make for a superb broadcast crew. They are on-point, entertaining, informed, and possesed of a fine comedic touch. Long may they reign.
Congrats, Rem Dawg!
