The biggest mistake people make in life is assuming because they’re good at one thing, they must be good at everything. For instance, I make amazing fucking homemade beef jerky. But I don’t think that means I can treat compound fractures at the scene of accidents or give a Catholic girl an orgasm. I know my limits. Curt Schilling assumed because he could strike guys out in baseball that he’d also be an awesome video game entrepreneur. He was so sure, that when government money and company money started going down the toilet on his 38 Studios company, he started funneling his entire baseball life savings into the company. Now it’s all gone and Curt Schilling is having a fire sale this weekend. From his house on down to loose AC power cords. Everything he has left.
“And I’ve lost a lot in my life but I’ve never failed at anything. I was going to [win] but I couldn’t get it done.” – Curt Schilling to the Boston Globe.
Schilling still has a job with ESPN so he won’t go without food for his arrogant mug, but the bloody sock and every other relic of his successful past are all gone. He should’ve made a video game about that. First person shooter.
