Interesting article on Deadspin where they detail how Curt Schilling is too toxic for even Fox to touch.
Last Friday, I asked Fox Sports if they were talking to Schilling about joining in some capacity, since a company currently stocking its kennel of hot-takers with diseased, three-legged dogs like Colin Cowherd,Jason Whitlock, and Skip Bayless seemed like a good fit. A spokesperson said that Schilling had reached out, but that the network declined:
We were approached by Curt’s camp this week and passed. We’re very happy with the group we have working baseball this season.
Schilling however is hinting around that he already has a new job lined up. He’s claiming he’s “getting ready” to take a position “that’s likely to make the far left heads explode”.
Maybe Schilling and the newly jobless Adam LaRoche are going to team up for a political talk show run out of their basement on AM radio? Maybe Schilling, Jay Mariotti, Rob Dibble, and Rush Limbaugh are all going to band together to start a “jackasses who actually managed to hold down high paying gigs at ESPN” support group? ESPN for their part seems to be doing anything humanly possible to erase Curt Schilling from existence. Either way, Curt continues to be the irritating cyst that just refuses to go the fuck away.
