When baseball great Curt Schilling took to Twitter congratulating his daughter on getting to play softball at the college of her choice, he knew he'd attract a few boo-birds.
But, he could have never predicted the level of obscenity that would ensue.
Most of the tweets are too graphic and disgusting to be worthy of re-posting. However, Twitchy was able to clean up a couple of the messages:
Schilling responded by writing about the incident on his blog, 38 Pitches:
"If you are a dad this is something you well know already, if you are a dad with a daughter this is likely to get your blood going.
If you are a boy, or young man, or husband, and you haven’t experienced children yet, or haven’t had a daughter, it’s next to impossible for you to understand."
Schilling also took to Twitter and sent this message to three influential conservative women:
In an addendum to his first blog post, Schilling wrote:
"I have to ask, is this even remotely ok? In ANY world? At ANY time?Worse yet? No less than 7 of the clowns who sent vile or worse tweets are athletes playing college sports.I knew every name and school, sport and position, of every one of them in less than an hour. The ones that didn’t play sports were just as easy to locate."
He also deconstructed the two men who sent some of the most offensive messages:
"The Sports Guru? Ya he’s a DJ named Adam Nagel (DJ is a bit strong since he’s on the air for 1 hour a week) on Brookdale Student Radio at Brookdale Community College. How do you think that place feels about this stud representing their school? You don’t think this isn’t going to be a nice compilation that will show up every single time this idiot is googled the rest of his life? What happens when a potential woman he’s after googles and reads this?
The other clown? He’s VP of the Theta Xi fraternity at Montclair State University. I gotta believe if Theta Xi is cool with a VP of one of their chapters acting like this I’d prefer to have no one I know in it. Also, does anyone attending Montclair State University have a student handbook? If so can you pass it along because I am pretty sure there are about 90 violations in this idiots [sic] tweets."
Being a team player, Schilling asked for a little help from his friends:
And then he warned the trolls:
...This guy might be right:
It looks like Schilling knows how to handle a few hecklers trying to mess with his daughter.
