OK, Curt Schilling can infuriate me along with the best of 'em, but I do love it when he says stuff like this.
On ESPN tonight:
"Those games, when I'm on the mound, it should be automatic, and it hasn't been... and that's bothered me."
*respectful pause while Curt looks all woeful and dramatic and Curtish*
"My fastball control... it's been horseshit."
Of course they bleeped it out, but when he says "horseBLEEP", I think we can be fairly certain he's not saying "horsewhillikers" or "horsepoobuckets". I don't know, it just brought me a wonderfully mellow joy, probably because Curt is one of the more intelligent and eloquent guys on the team (probably the most intelligent and eloquent, if we're no longer counting Gabe Kapler, which, by the way, *sniffle*), and hearing him say "horseshit" is the sort of thing that makes me snigger.
Didn't see either game in the doubleheader, because they were conveniently scheduled so as to coincide exactly with two three-hour studio classes of mine (1:30-4:30, and 7-10). I haven't even seen the details, because I didn't get back from classes until around 10:30 (that last class being on North campus), and then there was homework to be done and OK so I watched some of the Toledo/Fresno St. game, what do you expect from me, sports nunnery? God. I get home from an excruciatingly long day, I want to watch football or baseball, any football or baseball.
I honestly can't believe that this is coming down to those last three games. I really can't believe it. It is almost inconcievable that it should come down to the wire in precisely this fashion. I don't know what I'm going to do over the weekend either... that Saturday FOX broadcast had bloody well better be national.
I think we all know what else is happening on Saturday... no, I do not want to talk about it, because, ohhhhh man. Drew Stanton can be dangerous and we won last year because he came out injured and and and our defense has been bad anyways and Chad Henne is looking like he doesn't know where to throw the ball and and I think I just made myself sick. I might need to go curl up on the bed for the night.
Well, here's MGoBlog's reaction to the Wisconsin game, and it is Good. Go see. Be (only, alas, momentarily) soothed.
