Curt Schilling has been outspoken on a number of different topics over the years—which has gotten him into plenty of trouble and, ultimately, fired from ESPN—but he’s not about to go around and just start arguing topics for the hell of it.
After fellow loud mouth Stephen A. Smith offered a debate-off with the former MLB All-Star pitcher the other day, Schilling didn’t hesitate in his response, giving the most absurd reason for not wanting to do it.
“What am I going to debate about? I have no interest. I’m forty-nine years old. I have had cancer, I’ve had a heart attack, I’m losing my hair. I’m not going to waste my time with people I don’t respect.
“I don’t respect him. I think he’s a racist, I think he’s a bigot. There’s nothing to debate, Number One, and Number Two, there’s not a chance in hell that I would do anything that would bring that station another viewer, ever.”
Hmm… Schilling thinks Stephen A’s a racist, huh? Wonder what in the fuck he thinks of himself—you know, given all the crazy shit he has said in the past.
Regardless, looks like sports fans will be missing out on one of the most epic screaming matches in the history of sports commentary, so let’s all just pour a little out and forget this all could have ever happened.
