ESPN’S REVENGE: SCHILLING’S BLOODY SOCK OUT OF 2004 GAME 6 FILM!

By James Gallagher

Wow.

When you stick a finger in the eye of the Worldwide Leader you better be prepared for blowback!

ESPN2 re-aired the 30 for 30 documentary, Four Days in October, before yesterday’s Red Sox-Yankees game, and many fans noticed a puzzling omission.

Game 6 of the 2004 ALCS was not included in the documentary that chronicled Boston’s stunning series comeback against the Yankees. Game 6 was Curt Schilling’s “bloody sock game” and a crucial component of the Red Sox’s comeback story.

Schilling was fired from ESPN in April after repeated controversial and insensitive posts on social media. Even if ESPN wanted to separate itself from Schilling, it would be an odd choice to intentionally leave out Game 6 from a 30 for 30 re-air. It changes the story.

ESPN told Awful Announcing’s Ken Fang that portions of the documentary were cut due to time constraints.

But they surely could have cut a different scene rather than a crucial talking point of the entire documentary.
