Checking in from the heart of Red Sox Country...I'm up in Vermont with Emily visiting her folks for the long weekend. Curt Schilling is still not a member of the Home Nine, but he should be by the end of the day. Schilling has until 5 p.m. on the west coast to make a decision. I thought he might want to give Red Sox fans something to cheer about this morning, but he's going to make 'em sweat it out just a bit. I'm sure it's nothing to worry about. Schilling has always had a self-important sense of drama.
I'm going to be scrounging around the used bookshops here in the Middlebury/Burlington area hoping to find some bargains and perhaps even a hidden treasure or two. I'll be back later once something official comes out regarding Schilling.
