Curt Schilling’s Rhode Island Hoodwink Now Official Bust

Written By Diane M. Grassi

“There can be no question our country is in the worst economic crisis of our lifetimes…It falls on us, the individuals, to find a way out of our own personal crisis.” – Curt Montague Schilling February, 2011

For all of the Johnny-come-lately types who are just now learning about the debacle of 38 Studios, LLC, the video gaming entity belonging to former Major League Baseball (MLB) pitcher, Curt Schilling, well – it is now official. Its ill-fated future now resides in Chapter 7 bankruptcy, as of May 24, 2012.

It is important to note that there were those journalists in the electronic media who covered the story when it broke, such as this reporter, back in September 2010.

And it was in an article titled, Curt Schilling’s Rhode Island Hoodwink, by Diane M. Grassi, which actually riled many a fan of 38 Studios as well as those MLB fans who admired Curt Schilling’s baseball career and saw it as a hit piece.

Curt Schilling’s Rhode Island Hoodwink

By Diane M. Grassi

Curt Montague Schilling, has never been one to duck controversy nor a good game of old-fashioned hard ball.

In fact, in the latter part of his Major League Baseball (MLB) career as a starting pitcher, who many experts believe will be an easy entry into the Baseball Hall of Fame, Schilling became a lightning rod for controversy.

A Tale of Two Cities: Schilling’s shocking discovery of New York-Boston animosity

“Wise men speak because they have something to say; fools because they have to say something.” -Plato

Curt Schilling reminds me of the generic and requisite Real World stock character: the cantankerous jackass who falsely assumes his “candor” is anything more than pathetic and offensive white noise. The guy whose audition tape sounds something like, “I dont give a $%^& what people think. I just keep it real and say what no one else will say. I’m not afraid to go there.” And while he’s initially embraced by the other housemates, he ultimately alienates himself from the group, leaving him with nothing left to do but self-indulgent confessionals.
