Former Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling recently congratulated his daughter, who is headed to Salve Regina University to study at and pitch for the softball team:
After that, Schilling received some horrible reaction from twisted individuals.
Schilling describes his thoughts and shares some of the horrible things some people said here.
Below are just a couple of examples of the hate directed at Schilling and his daughter, and he has many more screen-capped on his blog:
Schilling did some digging into who was saying these horrible things:
“The Sports Guru”? Ya he’s a DJ named Adam Nagel (DJ is a bit strong since he’s on the air for 1 hour a week) on Brookdale Student Radio at Brookdale Community College. How do you think that place feels about this stud representing their school? You don’t think this isn’t going to be a nice compilation that will show up every single time this idiot is googled the rest of his life? What happens when a potential woman he’s after googles and reads this?
The other clown? He’s VP of the Theta Xi fraternity at Montclair State University. I gotta believe if Theta Xi is cool with a VP of one of their chapters acting like this I’d prefer to have no one I know in it. Also, does anyone attending Montclair State University have a student handbook? If so can you pass it along because I am pretty sure there are about 90 violations in this idiots tweets.
I stopped because the rest was more of the same. And while these, to me as a dad, are just stupid and vile in ways you can’t fathom, they aren’t alone.
There have been personal tweets, texts and emails to more than one party in all this.
Some of the tweeters who said such things have deleted or protected their accounts, but Schilling isn’t letting it go:
Schilling’s daughter is appreciative:
