THERE'S LITTLE DOUBT whom Curt Schilling is backing in today's election in Massachusetts to fill the U.S. senate seat previously held by the late Ted Kennedy.
Hint: It's not Martha Coakley.
Last week, during a radio interview, Coakley mentioned that her opponent, Scott Brown, had been campaigning in Boston with former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani, whom, she reminded listeners, is a hated Yankees fan.
The interviewer then mentioned that former Phillies and Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling is also campaigning for Brown.
To which Coakley incorrectly replied, "And another Yankee fan."
Schilling then addressed the issue on his blog "38pitches.com," writing: "I've been called a lot of things, but never, and I mean never, could anyone ever make the mistake of calling me a Yankee fan. Well, check that, if you didn't know what the hell is going on in your own state maybe you could . . . "
