"This is such an emotional lift for people in New England and all over the world," Boston general manager Theo Epstein said. "I hope they enjoy it. I hope they do something good with it. I hope they go vote Tuesday and make the world a better place."


Kerry, wearing a Red Sox cap as he bounded into a morning rally in Toledo, recalled someone phoning a radio show early in the campaign and saying, "John Kerry won't be president until the Red Sox win the World Series." He exclaimed, "Well, we're on our way!"

Not everybody felt that way. Boston pitcher Curt Schilling, interviewed on ABC's "Good Morning America," said, "Tell everybody to vote. And vote Bush next week."

Bush congratulated the team's owner and president by phone — and thanked Schilling for his support.
i changed my mind
schilling's a nerd. and was bush watching "good morning america" or something? or did he already know about his voting preference?
Re: i changed my mind
I guess he did. I don't know. As a Yankee fan I have every reason to hate Schilling, but now I have a reason to hate him as a human being.
Curt Schilling could come out in favor of Satan Himself right now and he'd still be all right by me. Besides, he's got to know how unpopular it is to come out as a Bush supporter in the People's Republic of Massachusetts. That's almost as ballsy as pitching on a ruined ankle. :)
I don't know, I guess I'd hoped he was a reasonably intelligent person.

Then again, he is a multi-millionaire.
Well, keep in mind one of the Sox (I forget who) said his favorite musician was Phil Collins. Obviously, the only thing we should go to these guys for is baseball, and, in the case of Johnny Damon, stigmata.
