The bloody sock doctor is in big trouble

Feb 26, 2010, 10:52 AM EST

The doctor who performed the meatball surgery on Curt Schilling’s ankle in 2004 which led to the bloody sock has had his license suspended and is under investigation for . . . something.

Unauthorized possession of stage blood?  Complicity to overacting? Accessory to second degree myth-making?

    Roy Hobbs’ shirt? Well played, good sir.

    Stealing a ketchup packet from the concession stand?

    The part about him going 75mph in a 65mph zone…
    Was he holding down the traffic?

    A six year old DUI arrest, TFA didn’t say conviction, doesn’t seem like a pull-your-license-to-practice-medicine offense. There has to be more here.

    Here we go with the “See, it proves it was fake!” bullsh**. I’m no fan of Schilling the attention whore blowhard, but he was a hell of a pitcher in his day, and no one has yet offered PROOF that the bloody sock wasn’t really bloody. I hope this article was just playing to Yankee fan paranoia and revisionism.

    Could it possibly be the dispensing of acting lessons without a prescription?, or possibly assisting in the feigning of injury?

    I wish my team was good enough to warrant this kind of fan-baiting.

    They’re still not over blowing a 3-0 lead in the 2004 ALCS. That’s all.

    That, and they think all the melodramatic “back from the brink, playing with pain, etc.” stuff is their private preserve. Sometimes I think Yankee fans aren’t happy unless they’re miserable–about something. Perhaps being the defending World Champions isn’t enough for them.

    Wouldn’t it be a pisser if he were suspended for buying Curt Schilling his subscription to The American Spectator?

    “Perhaps being the defending World Champions isn’t enough for them.”
    Sure it’s enough, .. for now.
