Talk about the pot calling the kettle a color otherwise called black!
Curt Schilling has zero interest in sitting across from Stephen A. Smith at the debate desk.
Schilling has been critical of ESPN since the network fired him last month after multiple controversial social media posts. Smith, who was among those Schilling mentioned by name while blasting the company, responded earlier this week by challenging the former major league pitcher to a debate. But it doesn’t sound like such a face-to-face exchange will be happening anytime soon.
“What am I going to debate about? I have no interest,” Schilling said this week on Boston’s EEI’s “Dennis and Callahan.”
“I’m 49 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,” Schilling added of Smith.
“There’s nothing to debate, No. 1., and No. 2, there’s not a chance in hell that I would do anything that would bring that station another viewer, ever.”
