I don’t usually sit through all of a Red Sox game. I am always to nervous but today while I played with my 6th month old niece I put on the game and never shut it off. Schilling had a no hitter through the very last batter (hence the damn Shannon Stewert above) My stomach was doing double layouts with full twists (much worse then flip flops) until the hit.
Anyway we got the win and I was pretty much on the edge of my seat until the game ended (It was a 1-0 win and the win was in jeaopardy until the end) the most impressive thing about this game was not the possible no hitter or even the could be perfect game (I wasn’t sure if Lugo’s error counted against Schilling getting a perfect game or not) but it was the comments Curt made after the game. He said he was not concerned with losing the no hitter but only concerned with teh win. THAT is why Schilling deserves a contract extension. This isn’t a case of saying the right thing by a pitcher. Schilling didn’t have time for that. His interview happened seconds after the game was over. It was just Curt being Curt which is why I will always be a fan. (unless of course he ends up in NY then he gets hated.:)
