Now do you remember the bloody sock spectacle when his ankle appeared to be hemmoraging while he stood on the plate?
Some naysayers said it was only ketchup, and that Schilling was putting on a show. But this week, Schilling put those rumors to rest when he tweeted this image of his stitched-up ankle from 2004.
Now we know what it looked like under that famous sock. And that it was for-real ankle injury. Wow.
We can’t even imagine the pain that Schilling endured during that spectacular game. Pitching requires an extraordinary amount of precision and control, not only from your ankles, but from your entire body. And to pitch such a legendary game with an ankle in that condition is just… SUPER HUMAN!
‘Nuff said. Back off, haters.
