Baseball legend gets major support from POTUS for congressional bid


As ESPN began slipping away into hyperbolic Hell, one former baseball legend and talking head was singled out for his beliefs, becoming a lightning rod for controversy.

That man was Curt Schilling, one of the greatest pitchers to ever play the game.  During his time as a contributor at ESPN, the nation as a whole was chaining rapidly – particularly as it pertained to gender and sexuality.  Heated debates were taking place all across the country, thanks in no small part to former President Barack Obama’s insistence on allowing young boys and girls in public high schools to use whichever restroom or locker room they wished.

Curt Schilling, on his personal Twitter account, lashed out at the idea in what could be called an insensitive way, and was summarily canned from the “sports network” as a result.  ESPN at this time had begun to allow a great deal of political content to leak into their daily programming, drawing the ire of a great many sports fans.

Schilling may get the last laugh, however, as he prepares for the next phase of his career – and he has at least one high profile supporter.

President Donald Trump jumped on Twitter Tuesday morning to encourage former Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Curt Schilling to make a run for Congress in the Grand Canyon State.

Schilling, who had a long Major League Baseball career and appeared in the World Series for both the Diamondbacks and the Boston Red Sox, recently told the Arizona Republic that he is “absolutely” considering a run for Congress from Arizona.

The President was quick to urge Schilling on.

Schilling has indicated that he and his wife are still mulling over the move, but that it is being given “serious” consideration.
