Curt Schilling... laughably dumb  
the sad thing is, because of Red Sox fans, this book will become a best seller


and I love how he admits to cheating (ie doctoring the ball) in his new book... I hope he gets suspended / kicked out of baseball

probably the biggest douchebag on the Sox and in baseball (while Bonds isn't playing)... then again Bonds never used his fame to campaign for Bush

so once again Schilling wins

You do realize that's a joke, don't you???
chrislimpinya on April 29th, 2005 04:39 pm (UTC)
the last part of it is a joke (ie not switching to gycko)

The whole thing is a joke. Curt Schilling didn't write any of that. Page 2 was making fun of him for running his mouth all the time and acting like he knows everything.

while cheating is bad and wrong, I disagree with the whole "biggest douchebag in baseball" assessment. Schilling has donated a ton of money to ALS (Lou Gehrig's) research. Because ALS moves so quickly (50% die within 18 months of onset, and 80% die within 5 years) and at any one time only 30,000 people in the U.S. have ALS, not as much money is given for research. He recently donated $50,000 to fund a study of exercise's affect on ALS progression. It may mean sweet fuck all to you, it means a great deal to me, who has had ALS for 10 years. It is only through the generosity of Schilling and others that any chance for a cure in my lifetime is possible. That, to me, is not a douchebag. That is a celebrity doing right. I will root for him any day, except when he's playing the Yankees.

I have a bridge to sell you in Brooklyn, too.

I love that icon. (:
Christopher Robin's sister: rock onjeniferrobin on April 29th, 2005 03:48 pm (UTC)
thank you! I was kind of hesitant to use it in fear of getting banned or something, but dayum. It was so appropriate. :)

I hate that people are afraid of getting banned.
I hate that it got to the point to where I had to put so many rules in here.

People can use whatever icon they like (the person who posted this crap article has some of the most lewd icons I've ever seen and I object to that far more) and put stupid people in their place. The line of using one's judgement is just so hard to define, but I think what I'm trying to avoid are comments/posts that seek to piss off a large percentage of people in here or have the potential for *massive* flamewars. That is all.
Christopher Robin's sister: go yankees!!jeniferrobin on April 29th, 2005 06:20 pm (UTC)
rock on! I knew my icon use was inflammatory and snarky, but I had to use it, even if she cried to you about it. I agree about her icons, too.
K Thidden_meanings on April 29th, 2005 04:05 pm (UTC)
me too, that icon really got my attention lol

yyeaahhh thats a joke there, friend. Schilling runs his mouth a lot and they were poking fun at that fact.
too weird to live / too rare to dielilliah on April 29th, 2005 03:27 pm (UTC)
Considering this is a joke, where do you get off calling *someone else* dumb?

Up side:
Contributed lots of money to ALS.
Gaming geek.

Down side:
Arrogant fraktard.
Threatened to rip Michael Kay's head off for writing something not-quite-flattering.
Through the Bosox victory and his subsequent political proselytizing, made a substantial, possibly crucial contribution to a movement that may yet destroy the United States of America. (Your mileage may vary.)

One can't detract from Schilling's ALS work, but the jury is still out for me.

while schilling IS in desperate need of a muzzle, this article was meant as a joke. :)

hahahahaha oh man.... page 2 is a joke site. oh well
awewkajfjdsiawfulbliss on April 29th, 2005 04:31 pm (UTC)
I'm quite sure it's not Curt being laughably dumb here.
chrislimpinya on April 29th, 2005 04:58 pm (UTC)
Irony people... laugh
u guys really disappoint me

it was called a joke people... some may call it irony (did anyone see the daily show the other night)

president bush was talking about the future is through technology, but his camara was knocked out

Re: Irony people... laugh
I love how people (read: you) screw up and look like a total moron, then say, "I can't believe you didn't get my joke. I was totally kidding!" There is NOTHING in your original post that indicated you realized it was fake. Instead you acted like the article was further proof of Schilling being "the biggest douchebag."

You ARE an idiot. At least have enough sense to admit that you missed the boat on the article instead of pretending you knew it was fake all along. That only serves to make you look like a bigger ass.

Re: Irony people... laugh
you're an idiot... the title was 'laughably dumb', my actual post, in my own journal which was made earlier than this one....

you know what, fuck it. think what you want.

irony is totally lost on the ignorant

Re: Irony people... laugh
don't pay attention to any of these people. whether you knew it was a joke or not, it shouldn't be a big deal and people shouldn't be criticizing you this much. if it was a mistake, big deal. if you knew it was a joke, then okay. but seriously don't pay attention to them, they obviously didn't recognize that they were being jerks to you by jumping all over you for some really dumb thing that wasn't important.

Re: Irony people... laugh
sweetie, you have no clue. I am not an idiot, nor ignorant. In fact, your user info reeks of ignorance (college is for an education, not for beer induced drunken oblivion), and your reply to this comment furthers the you're-a-moron argument. What does your post in your journal being earlier have to do with anything? You posted it here, where other members could see it. You went off on Schilling for being a "douchebag" as evident by his "new book" discussed on a website. When people called you out for taking a joke as truth, instead of admitting that you were duped, you bitched us out for being idiots who can't take a joke. What is the joke? Where is this irony that you say we missed? If calling me an ignorant idiot and referring to a duplicate post in your own journal is your best comeback, I doubt that I'm the idiot, sweetheart.

Kelleyfo_shizzzle on April 29th, 2005 08:37 pm (UTC)
hah, i think the title of the 'book' "Curt Schilling's Guide to the Galaxy" should have given it away that it was a joke lol

Your icon is orgasmic
Keithasaurus Rex: bosoxsinsterminister on April 29th, 2005 11:10 pm (UTC)
What?! You're not going to rip this guy's post?!

Way to make me look stupid...
Kelleyfo_shizzzle on April 30th, 2005 12:13 am (UTC)
