Curt Schilling Exclusive: “I’m A Big Nerd”

Schilling defends his ways and tells us people should consider EverQuest a healthy habit for a pro athlete. “These days, it’s not such a bad thing to stay in your room and play on your computer,” he says. “That way, I’m never going to be the lead story on ESPN [the next] morning for being out late and doing something stupid.”

On how big a nerd he was:
“This is how nerdy we were: we’d literally take a tape recorder and turn it on at one o’clock in the morning while we were playing, and we’d narrate the game into the microphone.

That’s how big of a geek I was. We all were. That’s when I got hooked.

The amazing thing: I have never, ever played a baseball game.”

 

Wow, that is nerdy!

Well, he loved the sound of his own voice even then. But if he can do PBP, maybe we can keep him out of public office. Too bad he's not at all likeable.

I like the way he speaks his mind to Dan.

Assuming his children are the right age, I think its cool that he plays with his children while he's on the road.

Also, of interest to me and possibly a handful of others, the game his company is developing is certainly intriguing. The MMO I just started playing had a budget of around $30 million and took over 4 years to develop. I would be interested to see the world that could be created with almost twice the budget.
   5. Dan The Mediocre is one of "the rest" Posted: February 08, 2007 at 04:16 AM (#2293898)
JMP, what MMO game is that?

And Schilling is right: Playing games on the internet is better than getting in trouble in bars.
   6. Dr. Vaux Posted: February 08, 2007 at 04:47 AM (#2293906)
And what's this about Michael Holley apparently saying he "has it on good authority" that Schilling is "desperately out of shape?" (Of course, he was last year, too.)
   7. jmp Posted: February 08, 2007 at 04:50 AM (#2293908)
Vanguard: Saga of Heroes, developed by two of the lead developers of the original Everquest. The game is huge, and the CEO of Sigil, developer of the game, said there were things he wanted to do but couldn't because he couldn't fit it in the budget. Knowing how expansive and detailed Vanguard is, and being able to dramatically add to the budget, would result in a game world that is hard for me to fathom.
   8. Rough Carrigan Posted: February 08, 2007 at 05:11 AM (#2293913)
I don't know that it much matters what shape Schilling might have been in at some dinner a month ago when somebody saw Schilling and told Holley about it. If he goes down to Verstegan's a month before spring training and gets in top shape in that time, everything's cool.

general Q on Schill: Not atemtping to start flame wars, but looking for objective responses to something that puzzles me.

I've seen multiple writers/bloggers toss out one-liners, almost out of nowhere, about how much they despise him. What gives?

What I think I know: Schilling apparently likes to hear himself talk and is a spotlight hog. Those don't seem to be all that incriminating, given the activities and personas of a hundred other pro athletes. OTOH, I haven't heard that his teammates or management despise him; he's not one who folds in the clutch or begs out for a ingrown toenail; and he was one of the first few (he and Smoltzy?) who were bold enough to say that guys taking roids was a big problem. These are positives, no?

So can someone 'splain to me why he obviously rubs some people really far the wrong way? Is it personal, political, religious views? Some skeleton I'm unaware of?
   11. Mister High Standards Posted: February 08, 2007 at 02:08 PM (#2294019)
Tom, it's political and religious mostly. Though most will shroud their hatred behind other rational.

I cannot understand why I find MMORPGs to be at all fun, nor can I explain what you do in any sort of way that makes them even sound fun, but I almost always enjoy playing them.

These games have tapped into something psychological that makes them addictive like crack. Although I am surprised that anyone is still playing Everquest when they could be playing World of Warcraft.

Didn't some kids in the 70's actually kill themselves when their D&D player got killed? Of coarse this could be one of those "Mikey died by drinking coke with a bag full of pop-rocks in his mouth" things.

If Schilling is Christian, he is of a faith that has no objections to demonic monsters and pointy-eared witches. Like, maybe, Unitarian. That's about it. Maybe United Church of Christ. Couldn't be a fundie, though.

Actually scott, Vaux and Vortex said those were the exact reasons why they disliked him in a thread just last week. (I'm with you, however, as a lefty who likes Curt).

I do think there are other reasons why people have such an intense hatred for Schilling, though many of those reasons are equally silly.
   26. Dr. Vaux Posted: February 08, 2007 at 06:11 PM (#2294210)

All Christians should believe the apocalypse will come soon, since it says so in the Bible. Puts the fear of the seven-headed beast in ya. If he's taking that literally, he may be a fundie at that, but not necessarily. I still come back to what his pastor would say about this particular use of his time. I sure know what mine would've said. Lucky me, I don't have to listen to that B.S. any more.
   32. tfbg9 Posted: February 08, 2007 at 08:04 PM (#2294269)
I think Schilling is a RC. He does the sign of the cross, I think, before each first batter he faces in a game, and I believe that only Catholics do the sign of the cross, but I'm probably wrong.

MHS is mostly right, if Schilling was an outspoken secular progressive he'd be described as "thougthful", not "opinionated".

It is beyond me how a Sox fan over the age of 30 could hate Schill, or Yankee-hater of any age for that matter, but many seem to on this board. I suppose it is the left's tendency to think of the right as evil, especially an intellegent guy like Curt, and not simply misguided, that brings this on.
   33. Barry`s_Lazy_Boy Posted: February 08, 2007 at 08:07 PM (#2294272)
MHS would like to think that people dislike him due to his religious views and politics, but it's really cuz he is a jerk and has a crappy personality. And his looks. And the smell.

You're right. People who don't like Schilling think he's the spawn of satan.

People who say things that might rub you the wrong way from time to time are not jerks or have lousy personalities.

I agree with Monty -- IMO "jerk" doesn't mean "someone who acts immorally." It means having an abrasive, offensive personality. In theory, Mother Theresa could have been a jerk (and I'm sure there are plenty of "do gooders" who are annoying as hell in person). Of course, what exactly constitutes an offensive personality is a separate question.

   40. tjm1 Posted: February 08, 2007 at 08:51 PM (#2294306)
I think Schilling is a polarizing figure because he's so different from the typical modern athlete. When he talks to the press, he often says things the average fan would say. He clearly loves baseball the same way now as he did as a kid. He seems too much like a regular guy in a lot of ways, instead of playing the role of superstar. Some of the media, I'm sure, hate that Schilling does things like post on fan message boards and call into radio shows or his letters to the fans during the strike and right after 9/11.

Sure he's overbearing once in a while, and sometimes comes across as a self-promoter, but I think this is just a case of a guy who really wants to be the role model, and fit the behavior patterns that people say they want from star athletes - he goes out of his way to directly connect with fans, devotes a lot of time to a lot of charities, shows at least some awareness of and interest in public affairs and stays out of trouble.

Some people see this as Schilling trying to make himself look good in the public spotlight. And perhaps it is like that great quote Catfish Hunter had about Reggie Jackson - that Reggie was a great guy who'd give you the shirt off his back, only he'd call a press conference to do it. But even if that is true, I'd rather have a league full of guys like Schilling, who think that they're supposed to behave properly and give something back to the community than a league full of criminals.

I'm sure, of course, that there are also plenty of guys who give a lot back to the community and try to be quiet about it out of modesty. I'm not even sure which is better, though - a star player who lets kids know it's important to contribute to your community, or one who is modest.

Anyways, if Schilling were the worst guy in the league, the writers would have to focus on the games instead of scandals.

He seems more born again than Catholic, but I dunno. There's all sorts of Catholics. I like him. He's a unique guy for an athlete. Keith Hernandez struck me that way, too, during his playing days.

First of all, I doubt that very many people "hate" Schilling with the kind of intensity that kevin and Joey B. appear to hate Bonds with. Second, that's merely a subjective observation, not a value judgment or a criticism of anyone who might be described as hating either player. Third, I think that most of the people who supposedly hate Schilling really just find him generally annoying, rather than having specific issues with his political or religious views, and wish that he'd simply STFU and pitch.

In truth, I didn't really care about Schilling before he went to the Red Sox, and I actually liked him in 2004 (I thought the SOSH stuff was kind of refreshing). I began to get sick of him after the World Series -- after he became CURT SCHILLING, media god. Part of that wasn't his fault. I just got sick of all the bloody sock stuff.

Quite a few people took serious offense to Carlos Delgado's political position and criticized him. Any position (and even the lack of position, see ARod) will be criticized by the other side.

I didn't really care about Schilling before he went to the Red Sox

I like Schilling. I don't necessarily agree with some of his positions, but he's an interesting player to listen to even as you disagree. He obviously cares about the sport and the gaming stuff is a nice little way to feel less disconnected from an athlete (I found myself rooting for Glanville too because of the articles about his online gaming).

I was hoping at some point the Mets would get CS, but it never happened. I was also hoping that the Mets would never get DG, and that, we were lucky on.

I think he strikes a lot of people as being manipulative, two-faced and phony--the kind of guy who sucks up to the press by shitting on ex-teammates annoymously. Sort of like Mark Grace was seen. Also, Schilling talks to the media A LOT, even for a high-profile jock, and that annoys some people. The right-wing stuff may energize it in some cases, but I would assume that probably 3/4 of the guys in MLB are Republicans and most left-wing fans are aware of that on some level and generally don't give a #### about it if said jocks don't say much about it.

Tom, it's political and religious mostly. Though most will shroud their hatred behind other rational

That's paranoid bullshit. Todd Helton, for example, is a Christian right-winger. You see a lot of Helton-hate out there?

Gee, I'm glad I have tfbg and MHS around to explain why us secularist heathens don't like Schilling.

Here, I thought I didn't like him because of things like burying his head in a towel while Mitch Williams pitched, putting down his fellow Philly pitchers in the media, the stupid 9/11 letter, his making fun of Sosa's accent, etc etc etc. I thought all those things made me dislike him long before I became aware of him as a guy who was helping to reelect a pair of war criminals.

Good thing I've been set straight on that.

Glanville was routinely a great quote - he basically wrote Jason Stark's column for him for a few years. He also seems like one of the more interesting guys to have played in the majors, in terms of having done things that don't fit in with anyone's conception of a pro athlete. He got his degree from Penn in engineering (and actually was probably moved down on some teams' draft boards because of an incident where he missed a game when scouts were coming to look at him, because he was studying for finals). He now serves on the board of overseers of the engineering school there and runs a business building environmentally friendly houses.

There are plenty of Christian sects and denominations whose doctrines very much frown upon RPGs, at least if they involve simulated magic, witchcraft, mythical creatures, and other things associated with paganism. Not every sect draws a hard line like that but there are religious tracts aplenty that declaim the evil influence of RPGs and fantasy literature in general.

And thank you to the posters of #70 and #72. It's not just about the politics or even mostly about the politics. If it were, then it'd be hard for anyone who was not a religious conservative to even be a fan of any American professional sports.

Schilling has a reputation as a manipulative, back-stabbing jerk. There isn't one particular incident that stands out, but I'm sure if you give his biggest critics a few hours to go through archives they could find 20+ different little things that put together form a pattern that's hard to ignore.

Also, anytime an anonymous Boston player says something negative about a teammate, the assumption here is that Schilling was the anonymous player because he has a history of being critical. That probably isn't fair to Schilling, but it does happen.

No problem Dar', you incredibly naive knucklehead, you!

See, for the tinfoil hat crowd, like our Tito hatin' Dar', conservatives aren't simply misguided, they are evil:

Also, I wanted to add that I myself have mixed feelings about Schilling. Sometimes, he seems to be admirable and real. At other times, he strikes me as being as I described some folks' perceptions of him in #70: manipulative, two-faced and phony. The reality is probably that he is all of those things with other stuff the public and press don't see mixed in as well.
