I swear this isn’t something from “The Onion.”
Curt Schilling’s video game company, 38 Studios, filed for bankruptcy in June and now the Associated Press reports that their recent bank filing with the Massachusetts Secretary of State includes his infamous blood-stained sock from the 2004 playoffs as collateral.
Schilling and his company owe millions and millions of dollars, so it’s a little tough to imagine a bloody sock making much of an impact, but in theory at least he might be forced to sell the sock along with a bunch of other memorabilia in his personal collection.
According to the Boston Herald, Schilling also recently put his 26-acre, 20-room home in Massachusetts on the market for $3.45 million after buying it from former Patriots quarterback Drew Bledsoe in 2004. They previously tried to sell the place for $8 million back in 2007.
